The forge is the workshop of the blacksmith to make metal tools of all kinds. He will use coal that will be put in a fireplace to heat the metal so that it becomes more flexible during the hammering with the forge hammer and the anvil.
The blacksmith will use several tools at his disposal to forge, the most famous of which are: the gas or coal forge, the forge hammer, the blacksmith's anvil and the belt grinder.

What is the Forge ?
Forging is a process that will modify the structure of a metal, whether it be its structural properties or its visual form.
To do this, the metal is heated to a high temperature, so that it becomes deformable, then using a forge hammer or a pestle hammer or other forging tool, we will deform the metal piece by striking it, twisting it or cutting it.
The anvil and the vice of forging are essential for the practice of forging. The blacksmith will also need pliers and hammers.
During the forging process, the metal will improve its resistance to the mechanical stress that it may undergo later. As in the manufacture of a knife, the forged steel will gain in strength and elasticity.
Tool of blacksmith
The blacksmith is equipped with several tools in his workshop to carry out his forge. First of all, we will find in his workshop the most used tools like the hearth and the anvil.
There are two types of tools: manual tools and electric tools. Here are the main ones:
- The hearth which is used to heat the metal to be able to work it, but also to carry out the heat treatments.
- The anvil which is used as a support to strike the steel heated by the hammer.
- The hammer to create the shape of the steel by striking it
- The clamps to hold the hot metal
- The belt grinder to create the edge of the knife blade, to sand and polish the steel
