Thanks Billman.  Gotta love the anvils, but the art blacksmithing photos are truly inspiring.

thanks for posting this site,  so many pictures, I had to save in my favorites to return later.

so good to see the many happy guys enjoying what they are doing,  plus what a great
little work shop they have.

I smiled at the picture of the little kid with his two fisted hammer.

great items they are hammering out.

Thanks for the link.  I am 1/4 Polish, so I enjoyed the pictures.   My great grandfather emigrated from Poland.  My Dad said he could remember him cutting the lawn with a scythe.  He said it looked as good as using a lawnmower.
