I am very interested to see

I am very interested to see young Chinese interested in blacksmithing.
Here in the west, we hear that the modern Chinese is only interested in computers and technology, and that hobbies which involve craftsmanship are considered old fashioned and dirty and low class.

Of course, there are still blacksmiths in China, making tools and fixing things, and some of the biggest businessmen started as blacksmiths- the largest automotive driveline company in the world, Wanxiang Group, was started by a blacksmith, Mr. Lu Guanqiu.

The blacksmith makes the tools, which make everything.

In Finland, they believe a blacksmith made the world.

In my blacksmithing shop, my big power hammer is from China- its an Anyang, from
I love it.

Dear Ries
Merry Christmas! your photo is very cool on Artmetal
In China, Some Young Chinese are creazy in computer and technology as you said, but I like blacksmith, it is artistic and beautiful
The NO.1 group China is LOYALIRON and Anyang is prefessional at blacksmith tools & machine
In the west, the wrought iron technology & exprience is more developed I think So, It is better to know its history ,style, technology, how will it develop in the near future
Thanks for your attention and kindly sharing ,wish we can be friends soon.
