    Sam Thompson is the owner and founder of Ravens Keep Forge: Magical Primitive Blacksmithing. Sam has a mission
     is to take scrap/unwanted metal and re-purpose it into something functional and pleasing to the eye. At Ravens Keep Forge, Sam salvages for the steel/metal/copper and then reforms it in their very primitive forge. This forge uses no coal, only homemade charcoal. While the process may take longer, the energy input into reusing world's valuable resources is more than worth it. Check out all the magic that Ravens Keep Forge offers! You can also follow Sam on Instagram and Facebook.
