  1. Thanks. Apparently the sideways pictures work. The width was under 500. Aspect ratio maybe the term you're missing.
  2. I forged this out of a 5/8" car spring yesterday. The blade is 5". The quench today resulted in an impressive warp. Managed to straighten it during the tempering. It seems to have a vague knife like quality. So far, so good. I'll also try to resize the picture. Resize photo from 971X547 to 550X309
  3. IF&C, Sorry I didn't get back here in time to resize the picture. After posting, I set my phone down to cook dinner and didn't pick it back up until this morning. The knife was heat treated properly and seems to be about right for hardness. A file doesn't do anything and it sharpens well on stones.
  4. Since I saw no path to get this knife to pretty, I chose to finish it. Just short of 8". Amateurish, I know, but I'm an amateur, so I'm reasonably pleased with it. No close up photos were warranted.
  5. A quick hair thingy project for my daughter today. I actually had a plan, made a sketch, and followed a procedure. Not my usual MO.
  6. Thanks for the terminology correction, Jennifer. Scarf was the term I was not able to retrieve from the cobweb infested mental files. I think it was my farrier that called it a jump weld.
  7. I attempted a jump weld and a basket. I'll call them partially successful.
  8. Just a quick little project this afternoon. I should have had a plan before starting. I need to work on that. Functionality test was positive.
  9. Just thinking out loud again. I'm prone to that. "That's what sells" might be the best answer.
  10. Aesthetics are a viable answer, but from a purely physics stand point, having the faces and, especially, the edge fullers closer to the handle center line makes more sense. Unless, of course, I'm missing something....nah, that can't be it.
  11. Great looking hammer, Conrad! I do have a question about the design of rounding hammers. What is the purpose of the fullers between the faces and the eye?
  12. Nice work and I couldn't agree more with the sentiment. That's why I do the silly things I do. Carry on.
  13. Cut rodent into 1" chunks, salt, pepper and dredge in flour. Brown in bacon fat. Place in slow cooker or pressure cooker with potato, carrot, parsnip, rutebega, onion, garlic, and bay leaf. Cover with beef stock. Cook until very tender.
