Steve McGrew – Blacksmith
Blacksmithing has been my passion since 2008, and I’m sure it will be an important part of my life from now until the end. There is something special about the process of shaping metal with hammer, anvil, and fire. It requires all of your attention, creativity, and power. At the end of a day of forging, you’re tired, relaxed, and deeply satisfied. There is also something special about the community of blacksmiths. Most have a calmness and strength earned by honest exertion. We are united by our love for shaping lumps of steel into things of utility and beauty.
