Located in scenic Pigeon Forge, Iron Mountain Metal Craft sits kitty-corner to the location of the original Pigeon Forge – the namesake of the city. We strive to preserve and pass on the knowledge, art, and skills of metal working including blacksmithing & blade-smithing. We share this information and our passion for metal-smithing with the public and maintain this website to further our goal of sharing our knowledge with others.
Education is one of our primary goals. We sponsor a variety of skill and knowledge-building workshops including beginning blacksmith classes and project based blacksmithing classes.
We offer entertainment and education for the whole family, and all are welcome. Our proprietor Robby Bowman, of “Forged in Fire” fame, was looking for a way to expand the public’s knowledge of blacksmithing and give the visitors of Pigeon Forge something they could do on vacation that could last a lifetime. His vision was to create a smithy that the visitors could actually hammer at and leave with a finished product.
After over a decade of coal, sweat and smiles Robby’s famous line, “Woooo!” is a staple sound that can be heard ringing through the valley, rising on the ring of his anvil for all to hear.
