I Forge Iron

First Knife

Recommended Posts

Started life as a surplus drill bit, but I think it turned out pretty well I think.  I haven't tried heat treating yet, I wanted to get a feel for most of the processes, from forging to grinding to making a handle.  I enjoyed every part.  Can't wait to start my next project.  Any critiques or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks for looking.

My second project from this weekend.  I wasnt sure where I was going, I just kind of let it guide itself.  It was a tap to start, fairly small and pretty easy to forge.  After reading a bit about high speed steel, this must have hardened with just air.  I learn more and more each time if forge, I cant get enough, I want to learn more!
