HASH(0x9cb87cd8) étoiles sur 5 An excellent teacher 10 novembre 2009
Par Matthew Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a novice blacksmith, but Mark Aspery is an excellent teacher and this book covers the fundamentals of blacksmithing quite well.

He begins with safety and then moves into the fundamental tools - anvil and anvil stand, vice stand, hammer styles - and how to use them properly. He emphasizes the importance of square-octagon-round tapering. Throughout he uses humor and interesting examples which stick with you through the learning process.

Following the above introduction he moves into tools and how to craft them - various chisels, punches and drifts. Several of these are specialized tools that are to be used for the later projects in the book. At the end of the tool section he discusses the basics of heat treatment.

The latter two-thirds of the book are all projects from Wizard Bottle Opener to various tongs and a simple knife blank. Some of the projects are more tools, including scrolling tongs and some bottom tools and a few more tongs.

I'm very happy with this purchase so far. The book is abundantly illustrated with black & white photographs as well as a few drawings and graphs. After purchasing the book, I was lucky enough to attend a conference at which Mr. Aspery was giving a demonstration. His teaching ability there was as well-balanced as withing his writing. He is able to educate both novice and advanced blacksmiths simultaneously without making novices feel that they are being talked over while giving more advanced students additional insight into skills they already have.

HASH(0x9cb8b120) étoiles sur 5 The first modern Blacksmith Textbook 22 août 2010
Par Gary S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is the text book we use at out blacksmithing school in Los Angeles. It covers all the topics required for the Level 1 certificate from the California Blacksmith Association. There is truly no better book on blacksmithing. You will learn both the practical and theoretical aspects of forming metal. It covers tool making and many impressive projects.

Topics include how to hold and use the hammer, including how to modify the handle so you stop getting blisters.

Tool making includes chisels, punches, scrolling wrench, drifts, hardy tools, and lots of different tongs.

Projects include a wizard bottle opener, wizard hook, forge welding, spatula, ladle, fork, spoon, and knife.

The author sells this on his website for $63. So Google him and order it directly.

HASH(0x9cb8b174) étoiles sur 5 Great book, highly recommended. 18 janvier 2011

This is an excellent book on the basic processes of blacksmithing that I feel would be of benefit to both beginners as well as many intermediate smiths. For the beginner the very basic beginning processes and theory are explained thoroughly and with step-by-step high quality pictures. For the intermediate smith the book presents set-by-step processes with photographs, processes and insights that may be different from how the smith is currently doing his work. The author has produced a book whose printing and photographs are very high quality. -
--- And for the collector of books on blacksmithing, this book is a must-have. I look forward to the publishing of his third book in this series.

HASH(0x9cb8b240) étoiles sur 5 Buy both volumes. 27 février 2013

These are the best instructional books I have seen on tradition forging techniques, not only because the author teaches and understands student's issues but also because of the contrast in the photographs. The author appears to have painted some of the tools to make the work clearly visible, perhaps because he was discouraged by murky photographs in other texts where black metal photographed against black tools merged into an indecipherable shadow. These books are worth every peso. I wish I had bought them years ago.

HASH(0x9cb8b708) étoiles sur 5 Incredible book, from production quality to content and "learnability". Sets a standard by which tutorials should be judged. 6 août 2014

Mark Aspery is a master at both blacksmithing as well as teaching. Mark's 3 book series "The Skills Of A Blacksmith" begins with this 1st Volume which covers the fundamental skills. It includes many very useful areas such as creating your own tools such as punches, chisels, tongs, etc. Blacksmithing itself is an incredible hobby, including the fact that you use the art of blacksmithing to manufacture the tools of blacksmithing (how cool is that?). An introduction to leafing and other artistic areas is hinted at, but the real meat of those areas is contained in the 2nds and 3rd volumes. The B&W photography (by Mark) is truly outstanding. Not only does he present incredibly clean and crisp images with perfect contrast and definition for immediate understanding of what is happening, he even has a section describing his photography set up, lighting, and tricks such as painting the anvil grey so that you can recreate everything for yourself. If you have any interest in learning the art and craft of Blacksmithing, you will not be disappointed with the purchase of this 1st Volume of Mark's 3-book series. It is one of the prized books in my library, and I fully plan on purchasing the remaining two volumes once I've completed the projects in the first book.
