Late Post About My Son's Blacksmithing Event

I know this is kinda late to post my son's blacksmithing event. This was held about a month ago and I've been meaning to blog about it and post some pictures of how it went but I kept forgetting until now. Well it was very interesting and it took a while for the demonstration to finish. 

Anyway, picture above is obviously of my son doing his turn of the hands-on demonstration of how blacksmithing is done. They were supposed to make their own knives but the Scout leaders decided and agreed that they will just have to do a hands-on demonstration because it takes about 20-30 minutes to have one knife done and there was a lot of kids that day and only one blacksmith. It would have took all day and probably all night if everything was done according to plan.

Anyhow, my son had a good time hammering the metal and also learned something new that is part of our history! If only I get him to be more interested in this kind of stuff than be more interested in playing video games! :)
