Here is an image taken during my visit to Denmark in 1999. I am with my friend ( and also a blacksmith) Nikolaj Kovacs. We dressed up in 16th century clothes for a day of forging demonstration at the open air museum in Nykobing Falster. The museum is a replica of a 16th century village and everything is hand made using authentic tools and fabrication techniques.
