G’day, and Welcome To Blacksmiths-Australia.


  This site was created for the promotion of the Blacksmithing skill. A social & informative area, free from Assn. or membership constraints, for Aussie Blacksmith individuals and groups, be it professional, hobbyist or beginner, in or not in a club or Association, from Australia.

     I say Aussie, though “All” from “Anywhere” are Welcome.



     Some pages are unpopulated at the moment. As I get more time & requests this will change. I will as warranted, add pages in forums, and here and make site space available free, here, as subdomain with emails (also free), or page link, for groups, if they so wish. If you’ve a relevant, interesting pic or article, announcement, email it and we will post it. Or you can post it in the announcements on the forum. We are starting a news letter/email of whats on about the place (Aus.), so by all means send in your tid bits.

It’s a temporary Free Java Chat Room, until I put one on the server.  Simply type in a user name and chat away. It was purely a back up measure though will be left in place.


 If you are wanting information, on blacksmithing and knives or projects and how to’s on blacksmithing, check out the links page. Iforgeiron, Laventrix and the other forums have an excellent resource base, or send an email or request in the forum with your location and we will see what the club can post or groups are around.
