Ode To Smithy - Rekindling the Spirit of Craftsmanship June 21 2013

For us craftsmanship is doing what we love and doing it right. No matter your vocation your job is your craft. Craftsmanship is not a destination; it's a life-long discipline that centers around a love for what you do, passion for quality & workmanship and betterment. Here at Portsmith Co. this keeps us going everyday. There is a skilled craftsman in all of us so love your craft everyday and settle for nothing less than excellence. Thanks smiths of old for helping us rekindle that spirit, we celebrate you and your legacy!

“But still he keeps working with a will; that's the craftsman in him."

"When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman."

~ Jean de la Bruyere.

"But, when the work was finished, the Craftsman kept wishing that there were someone to ponder the plan of so great a work, to love its beauty, and to wonder at its vastness."

~ Giovanni Pico della Mirandola.
