I Forge Iron

From "The Ol' Home Place".........


Recommended Posts

I had a customer who inherited the Old family farm along the Mississippi river between Illinois and Missouri.
The family decided to tear down the old farm buildings and divide the place up into rentable camp sites.
During the destruction, they unearthed a few ancient files and an almost-rusted-away splitting wedge.
They cut up some of the barn timbers, which I went through to get enough of a piece of old oak to send off and get stabilized.
The file used here was an old "Arcade" with a logo like a horse shoe.
I didn't etch the blade but the hamon in that file blade is phenominal. I just thought it would clash with the file teeth.
Now maybe I can get busy with the Blade Show!
