A Blacksmith's Craft

The Legacy of Francis Whitaker - Volume  1

Written and Illustrated by George F. Dixon

A compendium of processes, tools, patterns and tips.

For blacksmiths of all levels to preserve techniques and processes essential for the mastery of  traditional blacksmithing.

Several years in the making, this is a serious expansion of Francis Whitaker's first book with over 800 photos and drawings.

Francis Whitaker wanted a real reference work this time and this is Volume I of that ambitious project. There is lots of input in these books from blacksmiths all over the place.

The sad part is that Francis died before Part 1 was completed but he was very clear on how he wanted it done. He would be very happy with the book.

The publisher will also give a portion of the profits from this book to The Francis Whitaker Blacksmith's Educational Foundation.

Volume one covers blacksmithing from tools to basic processes though joinery, drawing and design to hardware and architectural iron work (Rails & Gates)
