Canadian Bladesmith & Blacksmith directory


Recommended Posts

Myself and another fella from a Canadian blacksmith / bladesmith group just opened a directory where Canadian blacksmiths, bladesmiths, farriers, and related suppliers can list business or forge. The idea behind this is that it will help people find smiths, smiths find other smiths and suppliers as well as serve as a sort of repository for related information.

 

Once you add a "Place" you can then add events which people can see on a calendar that shows in various places across the site. This is a free service.

 

This is not just for large businesses it if for any smith or supplier that wants to be able to be found easily and connect with potential customers, other smiths, and suppliers.

 

So calling all Canadians, go add your shop, forge, business, etc. The more people that make use of the directory the better it is for everybody.

For the record, if anyone thinks this is a good idea we can add a subforum for advertising local smithing guilds, regional smiths, and so on.  Let me know if you want it.  It'd be a good thing to have with the Teachers' Directory, especially since that subforum is not one that people can reply to or ask questions on.

Thanks, Lorne, much appreciated! (Not a bladesmith, but a professional metalworker, so plenty of overlap. :))

This might seem like a small thing to our friends to the south but Canada is a) Uh... pretty big, even with most of us crowded down near the border, and b) Not... always the most popular shipping destination from the US. Being able to order something that's already in the country saves the headache of tariffs, and watching the cost of an item double when shipping is added.

Happy to help and give something back :)
