Thank You For Reading Hooks 101!

Hello, fellow blacksmith!

I'm glad that Hooks 101: How to Make $99 an Hour made a big enough impression on you that you're going to review it. Here's how to help others get even better blacksmithing information:

Step One: Click here for Hooks 101's product page.

Step Two: Scroll down to where it says, "Write a Customer Review."

Step Three: Write your review. The more you write the more it will help other blacksmiths, but as long as your review has a few sentences saying what you liked about Hooks 101 (maybe a takeaway that might change the way you forge) that's awesome. I appreciate honest reviews, so speak your mind and remember kindness goes a long way.




  1. Heavens! I know I could make a hook now that I've read Hooks 101.. Thank you Terran Marks, snd from hook on-ward to hooks then hinges. I have an anvil and vice, that my brother in law who had a dairy that had been in the family for 4 generations, gave me when he sold the ranch. They are well over 100 years old. I wanted the forge too but someone beat me to it. I have wanted to learn to do some blacksmithing for a long time so your introduction gives me confidence.
    P.S. I'm a 74 year old lady. but I am seriously going to try these hooks.

    1. Hello! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the book and you're going to give the hooks a try. Of the three items you mentioned from your brother in law's dairy farm, the forge is the simplest (and least expensive) to create on your own. It can be as simple as a steel sink or charcoal grill with some pipe fittings and an old blow dryer. Let me know if you'd like some more ideas for sorting that part out. Take care!
