I Forge Iron

New Anvil + New Hammer = New Knives


Recommended Posts

Finally had time to try out my new anvil and a new hammer yesterday. Made two blacksmith kinves with leather wrapped handles.

The new hammer started life as a 3# drill hammer. Reground to a square face and a cutler's face. I really like the way it moves metal.

All comments are welcome and thanks for looking,

Thanks guys. Donnie, thats a 137# Hay Budden made in 1875.
If you want a water proof wrapped handle, wrap the handle with 1/4" wide wet rawhide and let it dry throughly. Then carefully saturate the rawhide with super glue. After it's dry, water won't touch it.
