"New Edge of the Anvil" is a thorough revision of a text originally published in 1977. Designed as a comprehensive guide for the beginner or a reference for the advanced metalworker, it comprehensively covers tools, equipment, as well as creative and technical processes. Nol Putnam, artist blacksmith from The Plains, Virginia says this is the one book you need to get started as a blacksmith. "I urge all my students to buy, read, use and then re-read this book. Clear words, excellent pictures, good explanations, tables, charts...all you need to encourage you to pick up a hammer and start hammering."
Packed with black & white photos, line drawings & charts.
