AAAPirateBlacksmith forgery — “Where I’m not a real blacksmith, but I smell like one”

I’m an odd guy at times with an interesting perspective of the world. I like to work with my hands and make.. well.. stuff. I really get a kick out of sharing it with folks and I hope ya’ll enjoy it. Thanks – Greg Price (Greg Pricesmith)

Hey folks, I’m the blacksmith’s wife!!! I help in the shop from time to time, do a little chainmaille on the side, and play tons of piano. I also enjoy working with my hands and helping my husband share his passion for metal work with the world. Enjoy our blog! — Ashley Smith (AshleyPriceSmith)
