We are a non-profit organization that promotes the
knowledge of Blacksmithing skills and works to promote
the continued re-discovery of the art of Blacksmithing.

Association of North America (ABANA)
What We Do
We are a dynamic group of over 400 professional, amateur and
beginning smiths. The AFC is comprised of 9 separate Forge
groups with monthly meetings and two annual conferences.
We offer scholarships, maintain a library of videotapes and our
newsletter, The Bituminous Bits, it is one of the best sources of
blacksmithing information you can find.
This World Wide Web page is our latest contribution to the ever
growing, re-discovery of blacksmithing. This project will be an
on-going effort and any suggestions or offering will be greatly
