I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I forged these two recently. These are my first two.

The first one is forged from a 1"x1" square bar of 4140. Somehow I cracked the axe but repaired it via welding. After HT I left the texture. After the tempering I also left the temper color.

The handle is ovengkol. It has a double-boiled linseed oil finish, with the help of some thinner of course...







I made the other from a hammer. I just hammered the edge. The eye is original.

The first one was sharpened to cut hair. It made feather sticks and thin wood shavings nicely. I don't expect it to stay sharp for ever but I preferred to send this present in its best condition.

The second one cuts hair somehow but it has a wider bevel.
