I thank all those which taught me what I know today!
First of all, Mr. Massé who made me discover the blacksmithing world. And then, my different teachers: Eric Grimaldi, Mel Van Daalen Wetters, Christian Moretti, Eric Plazen.
I must not forget all the cutlers, craftsmen and buddies with whom I have exchanged information or material. But there, the list of names would be too long! And then, to finish, thank Jojo for the anvil... Realization of the site
Smileys and animated images:
I thank Fred for his advices on the design, Nico for the image which was used to create the logo of the site, Seb for his assistance on HTML, Alain for the loan of his HTML bible, Philippe & Pascal to have tested the site.
Without forgetting all the people who have addressed me their comments: Michael, YaCo, Jacques, Jean-Jacques, Laurence...
