Any other blacksmiths?

Perhaps a silly question but...

Are there any other Schwenk's out there carrying on or reviving the ancient family trade of blacksmithing? Besides me of course.

Metal working and/or blacksmithing has been a tradition in my branch of the family for generations and I wanted to know if some of the other branches continued with this as well. In the 1700's the three brothers were all blacksmiths.

If not current information about working smiths, maybe someone knows of some history that goes back to our roots in Germany relating to blacksmithing.
