red hot

Clank....clank.....the blacksmith's hammer make a distinctive sound as hammer strikes red hot metal. This seemed to me to have an element of danger, the heavy hammer and the glowing metal capable of causing harm. The blacksmith and his assistant were engaged in a conversation about how they would never shoe horses because of the danger! I had to laugh at that statement in light of their occupation.
