A forge is a hearth used for forging. The term “forge” can also refer to the workplace of a smith or a blacksmith, although the term smithy is then more commonly used. The basic smithy contains a forge, also known as a hearth, for heating metals. The forge heats the workpiece to a malleable temperature (a temperature where the metal becomes easier to shape) or to the point where work hardening no longer occurs.
