Terms to Know About Blacksmiths
Blacksmiths are artists who work with different metals by heating, hammering, and bending to create an abundance of objects, including fences and cookware. In blacksmithing and other forms of metallurgy, many common words have specialized definitions.

Hardness: Refers to the strength of the metal against scratching. Blacksmiths can harden a metal by heating and then quickly cooling the piece in a process called quenching. The result is a very hard, but very brittle, piece of metal.

Tempering: A blacksmithing process that decreases the hardness of a metal. After the metal has been heated and then quickly cooled, it is slowly heated again. This time, the metal is removed before it reaches a critical state. Tempered metal is less brittle than other metals and it has a different color depending on the temperature used to heat it.

Iron: A type of metal with a high carbon content, iron comes in two forms, wrought iron or cast iron. Blacksmiths once worked exclusively with wrought iron, which is completely formed by hand, but since the Industrial Revolution most use cast iron, which is formed by making a mold. Today iron is often used by blacksmiths for decorative purposes, such as for fences and rails.

Mild Steel: Metal that is stronger than iron. It is more difficult for blacksmiths to work with, but the end result produces a piece that is both tougher and stronger than cast iron.

Tool Steel: A high quality type of metal that includes more carbon than both mild steel and iron. Tool steel is often used for everything from kitchen knives to saw blades, and blacksmith prefer to use this metal for objects that need to stay sharp while resisting wear and tear.
