Franga,
Hello and welcome to myArmoury.com. Happy A good place to start might be Dr. Jim Hrisoulas' book Complete Bladesmith: Forging Your Way To Perfection. There are other resources as well, but this isn't too bad a place to start. I'm sure others will chime in with more advice, too.

Happy

I'd love to be in a position where I could go work for an armorer and weapons maker or a company along those lines for chump change, just to have the opportunity to learn. Who knows, maybe my wife's inheritance will put us in that position, well one can dream. Laughing Out Loud

Swordforum has some excellent forums on smithing and related metallurgy. Also, Albion has been looking for craftsmen for quite a while. It may be worth contacting them just to see what they can offer.
