Offered by the American Bladesmith Society, Inc.
Hosted by Texarkana College, Bill Moran School of Bladesmithing

Texarkana School of Bladesmithing


The Spring Piney Woods Hammer-in, at the W. F. Moran School of Bladesmithing at Texarkana College, Texarkana, Texas, is an event that every bladesmith, from the rankest beginner to the experienced Master Smith, should mark on his calendar. For one thing, the timing is just right for those smiths planning to test for either a JS or an MS at Atlanta in June to bring their test knives and have an experienced judge look them over and critique them. Everyone of the demonstrators for this hammer-in is an experienced judge who has served on a review panel at either San Antonio or Atlanta within the recent past.
