This is the processing of metal by forging. Blacksmithing in the lands of modern Ukraine has been known since the time of the Trypillia culture, long before BC. Blacksmiths have long made weapons and various household items (axes, knives, hammers, shovels, hoes, plowshares, nails, locks, latches, iron gates and fences, stirrups, etc.). Important types of blacksmithing were horseshoeing, as well as forging carts and especially pulling iron tires on wheels. Nowadays, mechanized blacksmithing is a stamping production of metal products, and blacksmithing as a folk craft is gaining popularity every year and becomes a highly artistic craft
