The Smithy was inaugurated October 5, 2002.
Aces and tools were given to us by blacksmith Peter Matthiesen, Holm.
The smithy was built so that we could make copies of the Hjortspring found's weapons, spears, lances and swords. We have also made copies of adzes and our beloved "Hjortspring-Iron".
At the beginning of the guild's life, we had borrowed a smithy at Danebod Højskole in Fynshav.
At one point, the folk high school was closed and there were then some "knife blacksmiths" who became homeless. Since some of them were also members of Hjortspringbådens Laug, it was natural that they all joined the guild.
They then brought their own tools, anvils, gas aces, grinder, welding machine and tempering furnace. The press shown is built here.
