About Dirty Smith

Rory May started Dirty Smith in July of 2012. The name is short for “Dirty Blacksmith.” An appropriate name to him as blacksmithing is very dirty work. It involves coal, power hammers, hand forged tools, anvils, forges and a lot of sweat! Using various social media accounts, Rory shares what he does as a full-time Blacksmith creating and forging custom architectural metal work. One evening he was looking for original and fun blacksmithing themed shirts and took it upon himself to design and produce his own line.

As time went on others were asking specific questions about techniques and the subtleties of forging metal. Later on Rory decided it was time to produce a few free blacksmithing tutorials via his youtube channel.

Rory has been on CNN’s Somebody’s Gotta Do it hosted by Mike Rowe, lead blacksmithing workshops and demonstrations at the studio Dragon Forge LTD and various other events across the United States ranging from: upstate New York at Jimmy Diresta’s shop, the New England Blacksmith Association in Vermont, a collaborative Bench project in Virginia, intro to blacksmithing classes in Rochester, NY and demonstrating traditional joinery at the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, Alberta, Canada 2019.
