Stuck on a Crossword? Discover the Essential Tool for Every Blacksmith
Once upon a time, in a quiet little village nestled in the rolling hills of a green countryside, there lived a blacksmith named John. John was known far and wide for his superb craftsmanship and his ability to turn even the hardest piece of iron into a beautiful and functional tool.
One day, as John was working on a piece of iron, his hammer slipped from his hand and fell on the ground. It made a loud clanging sound that echoed throughout the village. His curious neighbor, Ben, heard the sound and rushed to John’s forge to investigate.
When Ben got there, he found John trying to pick up his hammer from the ground. Ben noticed that the hammer had left a small dent in the ground where it fell. That’s when Ben asked John, “Don’t you need a special tool or a special place to work on hot metal?”
John smiled and replied, “Yes, Ben, I certainly do. A forge is a special place where I can heat up metal to thousands of degrees so that it becomes soft enough to be shaped into any form I desire.”
With that, John showed Ben the forge, a glowing furnace that was situated at one end of his workshop. And that’s how Ben learned that a blacksmith’s need is a forge. From that day forward, he would pass by John’s forge every day, fascinated by the magic that turned metal into art.
