My name is Solomon and I am The Solo Blacksmith. I aim to share with you the skills and products of an ancient craft.

My passion lies in teaching the self-reliant craft of forging. I hope these workshops will be able to accelerate the learning process of hobby blacksmiths or simply provide an interesting experience for people to enjoy.
