There is no real answer for how the first blacksmith made his tools because most of that information is lost in time. My guess is the first blacksmith used wooden tools and kept them wet to limit the burning. the first hammer was probably a rock and the first anvil another rock.

Today when i make a tool I take a long piece of steel and heat one end so that i can shape it. Iron transfers heat very slowly down the steel so i can hold it with a gloved hand without burning myself. If i have to shape both ends then I shape and finish one end and then cool it in water so it is cool to the touch. I can then heat and shape the other end.
