There’s a famous blacksmith in Saline, and he’s willing to teach you the basics of the profession

Check out the article I wrote last week after interviewing Saline-based blacksmith Chad Smith.

Chad’s a great guy and extremely enthusiastic about his profession. He works half of each year as a blacksmith and farrier on Mackinac Island, and spends the other six months annually fashioning and selling bladed weapons of all varieties, as well as decorative pieces.

Chad was a fan favorite on season two of the History Channel’s “Forged in Fire,” so much so that he was recently asked back to film another episode that will be airing very soon.

As they say, watch your local listings…
