I am a blacksmith and a bladesmith, and hopefully soon a bronzesmith as well. I make decorative and useful things from steel and iron and am a member of the Artist Blacksmiths of North America. I also make some armor, both medieval and fantasy types. When I do, I specialize in ancient armors such as mail, scale, lamellar, lorica, etc. I make it, wear it, and often fight in it ( when I'm able ) in the SCA and in roman and other re-enactments.
One of my blades and a letter opener, can be seen below. Yes, that is me holding the letter opener. All of it is entirely hand made by me.
