Every fire needs a good forged poker to keep that fire burning, the warmth cozy, and the conversation going. Improve your smithing skills by working on chiseling and splitting along with a high skill level of forging and twisting to complete a custom fire poker. Further instruction on body mechanics, tools, and the working properties of hot steel will be addressed, as well as various intermediate techniques, such as tapering, scrolling, twisting, bending, drilling, punching, hot cutting, flat peening, upsetting, and shouldering. In the end, you will walk away with a custom fire poker that will impress your friends and family and leave with you an immense satisfaction every-time you stoke your fire!
