I Forge Iron

Forged integral axe

Recommended Posts

I forged this from a big chunk of 5/8ths leaf spring.  It really took two of us, I used the press and hammer to draw the handle, but the head was forged in a post vice with a couple of 10lb+ hammers. 


OL 17 1/2"

Head 3 x 6"

Steel, who knows?  1095. 9250, 6150, 5260.  I treated it like 5160 with a long temper @ 500 degrees.
