Secrets of a Survivalist

Primitive Blacksmithing — for Preppers and Homesteaders

Blacksmiths have been around for over 6000 years- long before the existence of forges, bellows, and anvils.

Find out how you can use blacksmith skills in a disaster situation by using the most timeless and simplest of materials- earth, fire, air and water- to make tools and weapons.

Find out how to fix the tools you have or make new tools, when there are no more stores to buy them from.

Find out how to build a simple forge at home and how you can start developing a skill set that could make you a valuable member of any preparedness community in a grid down situation.

Find out how to make hard steel for sharp blades, and soft steel that doesn’t break- all in the same knife, ax or tomahawk.

Find out how to make charcoal- and why you need it in order to melt metal.

Find out how broken down vehicles can become your best source for hard steel that you can use to make tools that can save your life!
