Clip | 8m 7s Video has closed captioning.

Blacksmiths used to be an integral part of every community. Today, we can get pretty much anything we need at the store and blacksmiths are few and far between. But that's changing. One traditional forge in an urban Portland neighborhood is attracting everyone from engineers to chefs who want to learn how to forge their own tools. It's part of a resurgent interest in old-world craft.
