  1. I been looking around on the forums and on google but cant find anything, only found about hand held chainsaw bars and what they are composed of, so if there is another thread on the forums or a list of possible types of steel that are used for the chainsaw bars from forest harvesters I would love to know, it is cause I got a huge amount of them to use for practice and thought it would be nice to know how to heat treat the steel if I do feel like forging something out of a piece. Sorry if there is already a thread about this but cant find anything.

    What did you do in the shop today?

    Indeed you live and you learn, just testing cause I wanted to see how thin i could make it just made it a bit too thin for my heat treating abilities, It was meant to be a versatile seax chef knife never forged a thin blade like this before. But its all good only 1 hour lost, and it was fun

    Second Damascus project

    I always been a fan of raindrop pattern, but most of the time people make it to generic, but this is amazing work cause the pattern has much more of a natural flow its beautiful, also it being your second attempt at it is really impressive: By the looks of it is a really well crafted knife, looks like a knife that should work well for a lot of things, also since you made a convex shaped edge and it not being as curved as a kukri it should work for skinning as well. And back to the pattern, like I sad your second attempt it is impressive, I like the amount of layers you used it looks great, I personally not a fan when it gets to a point where there are so many layers it is hard to tell, think that the balance of finding the right layers for the pattern is key, and I think you did great man. Thank you for sharing your crafts, I would love to see more images if its not a bother

    Thank you, it actually works great even though it is my first attempt, I made it for filing jewelers wax and it works great it does not clog up like a normal needle file would do with wax
  8. Wow, that was a good deal man, I paid around 200usd for a 200pound bofors anvil which was a good deal as well. Happy for you, this anvil should serve you well for years to come

    I needed some really tiny rasps made, but I have no idea on how to do so, but I gave it a go anyway, it does not look good, the teeth are all over the place but I will give it some more tries, think I also need to adjust the cutting tool, it will get better hopefully. it is heat treated and it cuts.

    That is great for a first knife, you are doing good specially impressed with the other forgings you made, really well made. You got a talent for forging, thank you for sharing your creations.

    My cave is quite a mess ATM due to not using it much. I know I should clean it probably will by the end of the week.
  15. Only things I can add is depending on how thin you have shaped the knifes edge be careful so you don't over heat it cause the thinner parts will heat up much quicker then the spine of the knife, also since you are going to heat treat it again if the edge is really thin it can crack much more easy depending on how far you got with the grinding.
