Pieh Tool celebrated its 10-Year Anniversary in Camp Verde on Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12. There were many expert blacksmiths leading demonstrations on both days. Blacksmiths and metalsmiths held workshops on projects that ranged from jewelry and decorative knives to architectural ironwork. There was an enthusiastic audience for the demonstrations, with attendees coming from all over the state to meet and pick up new skills from the best craftsmen in the business. The event was also the kick-off for Blacksmith on a Bike - Gordon Williams (and friend Mike Allen) will fly to Anchorage, Alaska to start his bicycle trek back to the Grand Canyon, stopping at blacksmith shops on the route.
