I Forge Iron

First knife..


Recommended Posts

Just past 7 years of frightening my neighbors I finally get around to making my first knife. The RR spike attempt on the bottom was started about a week into forging and shows it.

Viking style knife made from a transmission bearing race. Stock was given to me 3 years ago, and I finally figured out how to work carbon steel at bright orange to be able to move it. Water quench, I was expecting cracks but didn't have a good oil container for the ATF, came out of the slack tub ok.

2 hours in the kitchen over at 350 degrees and I have something to improve upon. There's enough bearing race for another 2 blades if I'm careful.
