I Forge Iron

Rados Twist Hunter


Recommended Posts

I forged this out of a chunk of "stuff" I found on Jerry's floor.
Just kidding! Believe me - I earned it.
W2 and 203E twist from Jerry Rados' shop.
Now, that handle is the first time I've used some Stabilized Hickory that I sent off a while back. Man! Am I impressed with that stuff!
I've got a buddy across the river who does custom kitchens and such and he had quite a stack of Hickory blocks left over from a job that he was going to use in his wood burner to heat his house.
I cut up some blocks, put them in my shop ceiling for about a year and sent them to K and G for stabilizing.
I am so totally thrilled with it.
It was AMAZINGLY hard and dense and has character and figure that I did NOT know was in there.
Anyway, sorry. I just like it. A lot.
You can sort of see the little "sparkles" in it that I think may be some type of resin or something. It really dances!
And I liked the contrast it gave to the hot-blued Damascus and stainless take-down fittings.
Thanks for letting me run on.
