  2. Hello everyone, my name's Damien, a 21 year old fashion student and part time antique restorer from melbourne with a big interest in Japanese and Chinese antiques and the metalworking methods used on their hardware, armoury, locksmithing, casting and metallurgy and a handful of other related areas. Outside of the metal workshop i've got a soft spot for cabinetry, stone carving, drawing, sewing, history, gardening and insect collecting. Its nice to meet you all :)

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any hand tools aside from cold chisels that could allow me to produce this kind of pierced work with roughly 1.5-2mm thick corten/weathering stee
