DirtySmith has been a presence in the blacksmithing community that has been evolving since 2012. From producing one-of-a-kind full tutorials of how to forge to creating smithing swag like no other, DirtySmith has become a corner stone in the blacksmithing community to learn and get motivated to get dirty.
