I Forge Iron

8 Flanges from lawn mower blades brazed(bronze) to a 18" tapered section of black gas pipe, with 3/4 round solid brazed into a twisted handle, skull crusher pommel. Still need to add a lanyard and to clean it up a bit.  This was the first thing I really ever brazed, it needs work but looks cool. It weighs about 6 pounds, so its a little heavy. We're definitely going to make another more nimble one or two.

It was harder than I thought it would be though so now I have a better idea of what I need to make one.

Looks really good, now go crush whatever you can and try your hardest to destory it so the next one will be tougher! And video please so I can watch I am curious how the brazing will hold up to impact.

​Thanks, yeah I have some testing in mind for it. I have to get around to trying to heat treat the tips at least and maybe the edges first. Gonna try the "letting the colors run" approach for each flange I think, unless some one has a better idea. I tried to anneal the flanges before I cut them and everything around the brazing should have been by the time I got done :) so I don't think they are brittle.

We hit a cantaloupe with it, the flanges channeled the "guts" right at me, pretty funny.

I'm thinking about making another one already. This was my first attempt at a quasi CG video using Sketchup so its kinda buggy, but here is the concept. I think I may weld the next one though.
