Since the properties of iron were harnessed to make steel, we set down a path that drastically changed the way we interact with the world.  From being a key element for creating tools that decrease work load; to empowering the spread of empires, colonization, and the phenomenon of industrialism.  
My goal is to re-think our relationship with steel and how it effects society.  I am attempting approach it as a powerful resource that deserves great respect (and restraint); and to create quality tools and hardware from it that can be valued for several generations.
