Located in Troy, Ohio (just north of Dayton), members and friends meet at the shop the first Saturday (or the second Saturday if the first Saturday falls on, or near, a holiday) of each month for a brief meeting. Following the meeting, a blacksmith comes in to demonstrate a design or technique. Prior to the meeting, and following the demonstration, members are invited to forge in the north end of the building, adjacent to the meeting area.
Joel will be demonstrating forging a basic hunter blade and discussing design and heat treat.
During the fall, winter, and spring, the shop is also open Wednesday evenings (except holidays), from 6 P.M. to 10 P.M., to any member who wishes to forge.
Until further notice, any person in our facilities for any reason is required to wear a face covering, per state-wide requirement, as well as abide by all social distancing requirements established by state and local jurisdictions.
