Hey pals,

 

just me forging an over kill nail to practice both tapering large stock material and striking/upsetting in a swage block:

As always a high-res picture of the finished product:

I sure wish I was young again and could hammer like that for 10:27 minutes without stopping, in the cold.

I just wish I had the ambition to start that project,,,,without the power hammer.

When you can still forge with 70 it is a gift anyway! Some people have to give uo in their 30s...

Thank you beth I am really motivated to keep up my work since so many people seem to enjoy what I do. When I can already pass on that very little knowledge and experience I gathered in the year I am forging yet to people that are keen to learn and interested in the craft it really fills me with joy.
