This is my first instructable, made in ye olde village smithy at The Crucible. This hook design is taught in the beginner blacksmith's class. This is intended as a teaser for the full class, which will go much more in-depth on the specific techniques addressed here.
Be Wary! Treat all metal within a shop as if it is hot. You're working with very hot objects and serious damage can happen if you don't know what you're doing. Wear gloves! Wear eye protection!
Step 1: Gather Tools
1. A forge (I used propane, but gas will work)
2. Blacksmithing hammer (10 lb)
6. Twisting Wrench
