Rudiments of Blacksmithing IV

Rudiments IV can be seen as the first four weeks of Basics II.
In Basics II (Rudiments 4,5,6) each meeting starts with lighting the fire and adding another link to the chain. Then we get on about the rest of the class.

We will cover:
- basics of identifying and learning to heat-treat unknown steel.
- making an eye-punch/maker's mark
- the Square-Octagonal-Round exercise/demonstration-of-skill
- making a welded twisted-basket-motif s-hook

and whatever might fit in or answer a question as time permits.
