I Forge Iron

Damascus Dane Axe

Recommended Posts

I finished this axe before xmas...

but the fine finish was bugging me so I cut it off the handle and re cleaned it up and re etched it and I am happy now!


A couple before refinishing....





300 odd layers 15n20 en42.

Forging the damascus simples,

Forging the axe head simples,

grinding the whole thing up to a fine finish ...not so simples.......but it ended up OK!


well I cleaned it up. and deep etched it . I think it looks good now!

wow    just wow, that looks amazing, the patterns and general shape of that axe is great.

This piece really motivates me more to get pattern welding a go, the result is just such a better looking bit of work then without it. Really something you can hang on the wall and have your friends just stare blankly at it for ten minutes.

thank you all.

 the axe is etched in ferric chloride, I use it 99% of the time I do however have the hydrochloric , nitric and sulphuric around if need be.


Thomas, I am looking forward to the " so you are dating my daughter" chats .....


Fortunatly/unfortunatly I am not particularly intimidating most of the time...However Big Axes need to be seen in context!
