Blacksmithing Classes, We sell both Coal and Mild Steel Stock
When we re-open we will be once again offering...
We have been offering blacksmithing coal for sale here at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement for many years. Some have told us we have the best to be found.
Recently we expanded our offerings to include the sale of mild steel stock. We have three and five foot lengths in stock and ready to go. We can also accept orders for custom cut lengths.
Next time you call to order coal—remember to order your steel from us and save a trip to the big box store, save a few bucks and support our mission of keeping the pioneer arts and trades alive.
