I've done some blacksmithing. It's fun and rewarding once your project is complete. It's also hot an dirty. My nephew was making a movie and needed a unique old time weapon. I made him a sickle out of a flat piece of metal. Heated and hammered the curve into the blade and put a turned wooden handle on it. I wish I had a picture of it.

I use a hammer well. Would like to forge much of my technology stuff into door stops. Knife makers and furriers are in most cases in good shape but wear out early.

I've seen a few episodes. It's a pretty cool show for the most part.

I actually work with a guy that is a blacksmith as a hobby. He is a huge nerd as well hehe. He learned to be a smith so he could make Cos play items like masks and light saber handles. He likes it, but the neighbors don't like all the noise.
