From the website [http://www.piehtoolco.com/en-us/dept_1110.html]
The authors philosophy of the craft is beautiful and his thoughts and approach are comforting, a true believer in our midst. The book starts with the basics of making a cheap forge from scrounged bits; an old barbecue, some plumbing fittings and a hair dryer. It covers setting up the work area and building a fire (coal fire, not coke). An overview of technical terms is given and most of the terms are illustrated by accompanying sketches. Each project is illustrated and explained in detailed step-by-step instructions. With each new project you tackle, you'll be practicing new blacksmithing skills. Projects include a meat skewer, tongs, hinges, nails, hooks, utensils, trivets, wine rack, bolts, stands and more...so plunge right in and make your anvil ring!

In deze uitgave vertelt de auteur hoe je zelf thuis smidswerk kunt produceren. Het is geschreven voor mensen die al ervaring hebben met metaalbewerkingstechnieken. Het inleidende gedeelte waarin de basis wordt uitgelegd, is dan ook vrij beknopt gehouden en mede daardoor is het omschreven werk voor de beginner niet meteen na te doen. Na het algemene gedeelte volgt een 25-tal voorbeelden van smeedwerk, ongeveer opklimmend in moeilijkheidsgraad. De tekst is wel eenvoudig en wordt door talloze zwart-wit foto's en tekeningen goed ondersteund. Een heel uitgebreide inhoudsopgave vergemakkelijkt de toegankelijkheid. Kortom: een eenvoudig boek, maar voor de gevorderde ambachtsman.
