I Forge Iron

2 weekends at the maple festival

Recommended Posts

the saturday and sunday before last as well as sunday, me and a smith who lives near our store, demonstrated at the meyersdale maplefest. and sunday we got rained out, but i made an arrowhead and a flint striker before it started. i wasn't working constantly, he would work, i would work, and so on so forth. from about 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. so while one of us was working the other could talk to the on lookers. well for 2 and a half days this isn't that bad.

from left: the two parts of a hasp for a trunk, and a tomahawk head that i nearly burnt talking <_< but thats how those things go

from left: soon to be bottle opener, small ball peen hammer from 3/4ish inch bar(OLD wagon axle), arrowhead, drive-in candle holder, 3 nails made in the same header one's just longer, rough forged integral bolster chopping knife, flint striker, and a slitting chisel. the anvil face is 5 inches wide for scale.
