Pretty awesome article, photos and video clips. I can see what you mean about working that hammer. So when the smith taps twice is he saying "hit between here and here?"
Thanks! The first tap tells you were to hit, and the second tap is on the anvil and means "go". If he taps the anvil twice, it means "stop"
