African Blacksmiths Forge A Hoe

Ok, so you think standing in front of a hot fire, holding a 2000 degree piece of iron, and swinging a large hammer all day is hard work? Try doing it without safety glasses, ear plugs, gloves, or even pants for that matter.

Add in the distinct lack of tools and what you have is a humbling experience for anyone who might consider themselves to be a contemporary blacksmith.

The unbelievable badass work of the smiths in this video is a powerful motivator and a testament to the industriousness of people.
