Just Who The Heck Am I?

I’m Mark Karmichael, and I’m a hobby blacksmith. When I first started learning to smith a few years ago, I really struggled to get started, especially since I didn’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on different courses or programs.

That’s why I started Begin to Blacksmith. Just a simple website dedicated to helping beginner blacksmiths get started…without spending an arm and a leg in the process.

Anyone, no matter where they live, how strong they are, or what gender they happen to be, can become an excellent, self-taught blacksmith. Hopefully, my little website will help show you how. Awin
