Ever since he has known about the existence of bladesmiths, Hamish has had a romanticised fascination about the craft. As an art form, where the foundations have existed for centuries yet continually evolves, he discovers that the more he explores and learns the further he continues to push his boundaries and his own knowledge. Hamish enjoys the physical feedback received while blade smithing; sparks and heat hitting the body, overwhelming noise and dust, all senses informing the work.
