  1. Thanks for the feedback. The BLO was for the handle wood. Not the blade itself. Rhitee: yep. The fit and finish is defiantly a focal point. Not something I’ve done a lot of so it is going to be the biggest challenge i think
  2. This one is my second blade. My first was a rail spike so almost doesn’t count lol. This one is from a truck leaf spring and is a gift for my sister who is my biggest supporter. She asked for a chefs knife or a cleaver. This is good for both. It has an 8” blade with a 3” belly. 13” overall. Contoured handle made from a rescued old growth sledge hammer handle. Polished to a 3000 grit same as the blade. Heavily oiled with BLO. For number two im super happy. Took it to work today and will cut scallions and ginger like warm butter so I’m happy. Constructive review hugely appreciated.
  3. No. It’s a split off and draw. And the hook ended up pretty close.
  4. Haven’t checked yet. Lol. It should though. May have to heat it to melt in the base
  5. Blacksmiths Christmas party today. We each got a chance to make one of these.
  6. Heat treated and tempered my second knife. Defiantly came out way ahead of the first so far. Now for a lot of grinding.
  7. Finished my first rose today. Any idea on scale cleanup. Was thinking of soaking it in vinegar.
  8. Made a belt hook for my ax. Second forge weld I’ve done. Made for a nice sturdy hook and a stable belt hold.
  9. Heat treated my latest project. Kept thinking it was gonna go sideways. First forge weld. First oil quench and temper. First cord wrap. Cut through some 1 1/2” vines one swing.
  10. It is a spike. Leaf spring is already started. As well as an ax with a file for a bit. Wood is actually the broken end of a sink plunger handle. Lol. It is epoxied with the pins tight fit in the holes for a mechanical support.
  11. Have a smithing party coming up and one of the challenges is a one handed ax with a forge weld. Haven’t done a forge weld up to this point but it seems to have taken.
  12. Finished my first knife. Polished to a 3000 grit. Rescued wood with a BLO finish. Very proud of how it turned out.
  13. Done as a self test. Proud of how it turned out.
