  1. As im sure you guys know, Christmas is coming up. My family is pressuring me for a list, and i am drawing a blank. So i thought i might as well get your guys opinions on what are some good tools a blacksmith that is just starting out could get. I have a 3# cross pein, and some other hammers. I have a big chunk of steel for an anvil, and I have a forge. Im lacking in steel, but cant found any real manufacturers around me unfortunately. I do need some tongs, anyone have any ideas on where to get them? Really what im asking is what are some good tools to start out black smithing with? Thanks!
  2. Hi guys, here´s my new "opus locatum" which i made for my girlfriend as christmas presents. The worst was to fit sticks exactly in several angles on the bird cage. I spent lot of time with this issue. Sticks were curved on my home made tube bender, welded together (MMA rutile 2mm 50A) and grinded with angle grinder. At last painted with black matte color intended for metal. The whole work on cage took +- 16 hours, on the picture holder 4 hours. Both are made from 6mm fat rods and 2mm thin metal plate. I hope that you'll like it. :) Viktor
  3. Hello all, First i would like to say its been well relativly forever since i have posted or commented anything on here but im trying to get alittle better about that. So my main reason for posting this is to talk about a knife i plan to make for my mother as part of her christmas present. It will be made out of leaf spring and hopefully will have a bone handle with a full tang. I would of course appriciate any tips or tricks anyone has picked up on working with both materials. I will of course be posting pictures as soon as i am able. I have already roughed out the tang and plan to start forming the blade today. Thank you for your time, Timothy Well i worked some on it today and this is hows it come out. I do however think it has turned into a clever of some sort and the tip did curve up to much as i didn't compensate for the bevel quite enough i guess i forgot how thick a leaf spring was. I hope you like it. Ohh also yes i am forging in converses... probably not my best idea ever. http://imgur.com/a/PRn8e Tim
