Colin Smithing

Colin, our Vice Chairman, took the role of blacksmith at the Squirrel's Nest last Thursday. Colin forged a flint striker for lighting fires,Colin The Blacksmith although I think a box of matches would be lighter to carry than a hardened piece of forged steel and a lump of flint.

The Nesters confiscated our nuts for the duration, as we suspected would happen, they are notorious for grabbing men's nuts, but they did give them back at the end of our visit.

Andre also had his his favourite tool in hand and was thrusting it in Colin's face, I managed to capture this below.
