The first book my father handed me 25+ years ago when I started. I have been through multiple copies and loan it out to all new employees interested in smithing.

This one is a little more practical than I need right now, considering I'm not constructing my smithy and don't have any experience yet. I'll maybe come back to this later if I ever do. I won't miss the author's style--or lack of, actually, I mean, is it too hard to crack a joke every now and again?
