I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Fine splits for forks; if your london pattern heel only goes to 1.25" or 1" thick at the end that's the tightest smallest fork split you can make without making another tool, tight 180 degree bends, getting into tight spots like double shoulders (preform on tongs), I use the end of the heel as a buck for rivets in very tight spots. Personally, I prefer the horn and hardy on the left also.

There is no perfect. There are advantages and disadvantages for everything. Start with what you can get and you will find it to fulfill almost all your needs. You can add hardy tools to do everything else.

 

What you have is what you use! There is always another way to skin the cat, POOR Cat!!

Just spent a Saturday doing a medieval smithing demo on a no bick anvil.  Not know what *you* plan to be forging makes it kind of hard to GUESS what would work best for you---can you tell me what kind of car I should buy (without knowing if I need a commuter, a pickup a 15 passenger van or a dumptruck?)
