Northeast Blacksmith Association
Fall 2017 Hammer-In
Friday September 29th to Sunday October 1st

Our demonstrator for the Fall meet is Eric Schatzel. He grew up in the Hudson Valley and at a young age developed an interest in traditional trades. He is now 27 and has been smithing for 14 years.

Presently he lives in Otsego County and is the Master Smith of The Field Blacksmith Shop at The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, NY. He has his own shop, Shatzel Forgeworks, as well. He has benefitted from working in the shop with Paul Spaulding, Bob Cerny (whom we all know) and others while at the Farmers' Museum.

His main area of interest is the study and practice of traditional smithing, especially the work of European and American smiths of the 17th through 19th Centuries. Eric has focused on the manufacture of tools, with work ranging from delicate scissors and cutlery to larger items such as goosewing hewing axes and stake anvils.

His work is in use by many museums in the Northeast, including Fort Ticonderoga, Ganondagan SHS, and the Alexander Knight House.

For the weekend demo, Eric is planning to make a wrought iron stake anvil. He also plans to work on a traditional laminate bladed scissors or shears. In the remaining time, he will work on other traditional tool forgings, with an emphasis on high carbon steel welded to wrought iron laminates.

Eric's work is beautiful and highly refined and fits perfectly into the period he is exploring. His knowledge of

traditional processes and the forging of iron and steel will surely make this an exciting weekend demo. For photos of Eric's work, click on Blacksmithing at: attheeasterndoor.wixsite.com/attheeasterndoor
