  1. Blacksmith

    A blacksmith is a Metalsmith who creates objects from wrought iron or steel by forging the metal by using tools to hammer, bend, and cut. Blacksmiths produce objects such as gates, grilles, railings, light fixtures, furniture, sculpture, tools, agricultural implements, decorative and religious items, cooking utensils, and weapons. Despite common usage, the person who shoes horses is a farrier. Many farriers have carried out both trades, but most modern or engineering smiths do not.
