Sparks Flying

Some may think this post to be unrelated to ducks.

It is blacksmithing in the tradition of Laos and China.

Note the anvil .... it is a sledge hammer head embedded in a log.

The forge is simple a box filled with packed dirt with a push/pull blower.

Anyway, this is an introducktion to oriental blacksmithing.

He makes his own charcoal .... and everything else, except for the dirt.

God made the dirt.

Quack, Quack!

Duh... Can't you come up with a more obscure duck reference than this? Obviously this man is heating the metal to make it more ducktile.

Cheers!

So obvious .....
Apparently I have been hit in the head with a sledgehammer too many times .... I think maybe I have ducktile stored under "duck-til the hammer passes by."
Quack, Quack!
