I think at this moment if I tried a home blacksmith project it would be to make some holdfast. Would a square based holdfast to go into a square dog work? We have a small in ground fire pit in the back of our yard. I do not have an anvil though, any suggestions on a substitute to hammer on? What type of steel would you suggest for that? What type of hammer would be best to use for that type of project?

I appreciate the what to practice advice. I may just start with that and see how my eagerness responds afterwards.

Thanks for the advice and help.
