An age-old art form is in the spotlight thanks to a reality program that showcases the talents of the country’s best bladesmiths.
A bladesmith is a craftsman who makes knives and swords. Mace Vitale, of Guilford, and Matt Parkinson, of Wolcott, both won the competition on the History Channel reality show called “Forged in Fire.”
Both Vitale and Parkinson are blacksmith instructors at the Guilford Art Center.
