  1. I finished a second chain damascus drawknife. It has a 1080 steel backer with redheart and copper handles. I traded the bigger one to a friend (Brian of BearKat Wood) who made me an incredible woodworking hand saw in exchange.
  2. I've been working on this chain damascus drawknife. It started as a bicycle chain and a large old ARCADE bastard mill file. It took me three separate forging sessions, as there was more steel than I expected to draw out by hand and my arms are pretty lame. I now have the forging complete and the drawknife rough ground ready for HT.
  3. Hi all! This weekend, I am hoping to get a little forge time in, and I am looking to making a simple draw knife. I will be using some old spring, as its not intended to be anything fancy, just a workable tool.

  6. My first post so hello to everyone, Intro: Started forging a year ago, practiced it for a maximum of a dozen times, then the winter came and having no indoor possibilities I stopped. I restarted again this weekend. Meanwhile I tried to gather some information. I pretty much want to go through making as much as I can (especially tools: woodworking, metalworking, glass, stone etc.) It's kind of difficult to find guidance (face to face) as very few people do this sort of thing in my city/country (Bucharest/Romania). Still, fortunately I will probably be able to play with forging more than
