Blacksmithing, forging, and the working of metal are largely lost skills needed for the preparation of mundane and magickal tools alike. This book provides an introduction to forging that will enable you to experience and make both. Taking an approach focussed upon the practically achievable and affordable, this book provides sufficient information for you to be able to establish your own working forge and start working with fire and metal. This book contains a lot of information on the materials you will need and where you can get them, and detailed descriptions on how to get started. It also provides step-by-step instructions for several projects, starting with those that will help you progressively develop your smithying skills. These include items such as cloak pins, hooks, cup holder, letter openers, and blades (including Damascus). This book also contains extensive detailed instructions for the preparation of magickal tools including those for both iron and n-iron ritual blades. In addition to the practical aspects of manufacture, this also includes instructions for preparing the ritual forge workspace as well as for working with the magnetic fields within the blade.
