Sam Salvati is a professional blacksmith and instructor.  For him, shaping steel is both therapeutic and inspiring and feeds his passion for blacksmithing and bladesmithing. Sam is engaged by almost all aspects of steel working, from welding and machining to heavy industrial forging to fine artistic forging, but bladesmithing holds a special place for him. He has always been fascinated by swords of knights and samurai, and the traditional utility blades of all different cultures. Through researching bladesmithing Sam came upon blacksmithing and found a double passion that now he is lucky enough to do professionally. He lives in Maryland with his beautiful and incredible wife Kristal and their amazing daughter Leona.
