The Mighty Hammer Clangs

Although I am  excited for the release of Thor, I  am lucky to be able to hear the ring of hammers around here when my eldest stepson is home. The latest project will be his first homemade Axe head. At current time, I can still hear the hammer going outside and they have been going for about 2.5 hours.  That might sound like a crazy long time, but it is a great bonding experience for father and son, There is also the benefit of a  learned skill and a cool piece of metal work as a bonus.  Around here, it brings an instant smile when I can spend a spring evening watching and knowing they are having a great time staring into the fires of the forge.
