Technique

Smithing

On an indented section of a wooden stand, a flat piece of metal is beaten with a wooden mallet so it can be bent. After this, variously shaped iron bars known as ategane are poked toward the wooden platform to create a form gradually. A piece of metal must be beaten tens of thousands of times to create a single finished work.
