This was a project I've been wanting to do for a while. It is an attempt at a fish spear but as the photos show the barbs were elusive. I experimented with several different ways of forging the barbs and kept burning them off. If I make another one I'll cold work the barbs with files. This was my first attempt at forging a rolled socket. It's not perfect but it did turn out.....functional. My hat's off to Anyone who does this on a regular basis. Hammering out the fish tail and trying to maintain uniform thickness and symitry is tedious. This was a fun afternoon and I will probably try it again. I really want one with barbed tines! Specs.... Coil spring so..5160ish? Hardened the tines at non-magnetic and quenched in canola oil, tempered at 400 for two one hour cycles.
