Description:
Two members of the Balai clan delegated by the clan head discussed smithing traditions including the objects made with particular attention to hunting paraphernalia and also in a second, short interview the making of shackles and chains. Photos illustrate the interview participants, a flitch cock rifle formerly made in the village, and the traditional oil burning lamp still in use in the forge, and a video shows the forge being worked.
