Lake Waccamaw Southern Farm Days

Guinea Hog Forge bladesmith E. Scott McGhee demonstrated blacksmithing and traditional knife making at the 2011 Lake Waccamaw Farm Days Festival in March.

For the second year in a row, Scott forged over green coal and was assisted by his two sons - Jacob and Conner.

In addition, we displayed hand-crafted knives made in the gas forge at home, as well as knife making supplies and items blacksmithed on site.

On Sunday Scott banged out a Joe Keesler style primitive. It sold in about 10 minutes, and the proceeds were donated to the Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls home.

Devotion pays off. Scott forged a letter opener for a young man who watched vitually non-stop for 2 days.

We'll be demonstrating at Harmony Hall in Bladen County, NC this Saturday and at the Harnett County Regional Fair on May 6-7. Hope to see you there.
