      I love taking a pain lump of metal and crafting it into a fine and balanced piece. You have to use all for elements so it can be quite spiritual. I have watched a little forged in fire but find it too Americanised for my liking. Damascus is beautiful but is really hard to make, three of us were needed to manufacture a batch and it causes many blisters!
