  1. Thanks! Yea they are pretty fun and honestly not too hard. I used square stock and a guillotine to isolate all the parts
  2. Bottle opener is finished Wrought iron is very nice looking
  3. I over calculated stock size so it’s huge but here’s today’s work. It will go in the acid tomorrow. Wrought iron
  4. Hahah maybe it’s a good thing it’s not so nice then. You will never loose it !
  5. Well here’s the finished chisel. Need to sharpen it better. But it’s already fairly sharp
  6. I appreciate it all. I’m not trying to come off rude or anything so apologizes if I am. I think one of my biggest issues is with my Rush I didn’t clean the spine. I wanted a savage grind to begin so I flattened it with the rounding sides before beveling. I Don’t think I remembered the to use the flat face to smooth it out after. later today I will give it a go and see if I can do it better. As a side note I made a wood chisel from wrought iron and 52100 steel. Etching it now and you can see the transition on the edge
  7. I spent like an hour or total on that knife. I have time to forge today so I’ll forge one as best I can and we shall see how it looks. I only spent that long because it’s all the time I had available to forge
  8. Wouldn’t sting too much to mess a blade up. They don’t take too long
  9. Ahhh my mistake. Thank you frosty. I bet if I took my time I could do it much better. I’ll have to give it a try one of these days when I have more time.
  10. Thanks frosty. The main reason I didn’t spend more time cleaning it up is it’s gonna sit out side. Rust. Probably get lost in a few days and generally get abused. Just need it to open coal Bags and stuff like that. I also didn’t have a lot of time to forge tonight with other stuff so I didn’t have time to make it perfect. Eventually I’ll re do it better once I lose this one.
  11. I Needed a shop knife so here’s a quick and dirty shop knife. Forged from coil spring.
  12. Somewhat of a hofi style cross peen 2.6 lbs. Hickory handle 4140 hammer head
  13. Haha I suppose it does not that you mention it ! A ghostly latch could look sweet ...
  14. One part of a latch finished up. Wrought iron
