Hi there. I am considering making a steak flipper on my forge out of a piece of round stock. My question is, once forged, can you start flipping steaks and burgers with it, or is there some way you need to treat the metal to make it food safe. This is just some plain old steel round stock (non-galvinized) that I grabbed at TSC. (I am a beginner and not working with any expensive metals)
Hi everybody, My wife always use to say that the Romans left a great number of unfinished projects, when she look at the ruins of the Roman Empire. She is funny. But I am starting to think that she is right: another WIP (and I haven't finished the other one yet!)... Anyways, in the meanwhile that I find some material to finish the other one, I keep my hands occupied making a kitchen knife since the ones I have here are horrible! The steel is Inox MA5M and the handle material is Zebu horn, flattened to the shape desired and then worked with rasp and file. Bone bolster and butt cap. The handle is almost finished, the blade is just "file ground" only on one side. A lot of sweat!!! Next side next days. Here it is:
Hey fellow blacksmiths, some of you might allready have seen my YouTube-Video "Forging with TechnicusJoe July & August 2012." If not you may check it out because it shows some excerps on how the following project was put into practice: As a project to make during Joe´s visit at my shop I had the idea to make a wine bottle holder as a present for my father. So after some sketches and discussions we decided to make the holder like it eventually turned out. At that moment the only source of steel I had available was simple rebar, so most of the work simply was drawing out material to the right shape. The whole holder with a sample bottle: The top ring was forge welded and rivited, the lower ring was also forge weldet and fixed with a tennon joint. The holding beam is decorated with a fishtale-scroll at the end: The v-shaped base plate has curly cues at the tips on the one hand for decoration, on the other hand for safety and stability reasons: The holding beam starts of sqare and then converts into flat bar... ...and is fixed to the base plate via tennon joint. We both were very sattisfied and my father was very happy about his present. I hope you enjoyed the post about my little project. I appreciate any tips and critique on how to improve my workflow and the way I report about it in this forum. Regards - Daniel
Hello everyone, This is my first knife ever. I am attempting a santoku style. I think i have it to pretty close to the shape I want it but it's still pretty bumpy from the angle grinder. I don't have a belt grinder, so I was wondering what would be the best way to proceed.
