first knife looking rr spike

Recommended Posts

Well got everything aligned this evening and finally started forging tonight. Over the weekend I finally got a stump for my anvil and learned how to properly light ny forge. Took a go at a RR spike and this is what I got. Wasn't aiming for perfection, just getting a feel for how the metal moves and what my hammer can do. Its nothing compared to what I see on here but this gave me some confidence and drive just making this. Gonna hit it on the grinder tomorrow and sharpen it and hang it on the wall.

Stupendous start! If you have an excess of RR spikes, try doing some neat stuff with the handles, like twists or filework - you'll gain a better understanding of how steel moves under the hammer, grinder and file.
Let's see more!
