Blacksmith getting started with Blog

Hey Folks, Jason P here.

As you can probably tell I am new to this blogging so please be patient with me.
I just wanted to get something started so that we could teach more people about Blacksmithing.

The Warren County Blacksmith Association is a non-profit organization that meets here in McMinnville,TN. We meet on the first and third Saturdays of each month. We start with the basics of starting a forge fire, hammer technigues, basic forging tools ect. We then guide folks through the steps of making their own basic tools. Later we get into more sophisticated tools and also bladesmithing.

The Fairfield Blacksmith Show is a TV series that we produced as a project seperate from the WCBA. However it was our intention to promote the organization further and to use the show to reach a much larger interested audience.

You will notice that there is a video viewer to the right where you can sample our show.
You are also welcome to visit us at or you can see the more videos

We hope that you will come back and visit us here often as we will be posting much more useful information from time to time.

Take care for now
