I Forge Iron

Ti Knife


Recommended Posts

I've never forged any titanium that was softer than forging steel. Usually when done the anvil and hammer face look like they were lightly sand blasted. But some works different as in some will split open and others, like the one above look just like steel when done. Most get an elephant skin to them and I love that texture.

I am developing a love hate relationship with titanium of late.

It may be worth a bit of time to get some known alloys from Ebay and compare that to the stuff you have access to as scrap. I have found CP to be rather forgiving at the anvil. Some alloys are very difficulty to forge...unless you need the strength (or can get them cheap) I see little use for them over CP and 6AL-4V alloy.
