I Forge Iron

laminated hawks

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple hawks I welded up with wrought iron wrapped and forge weld started then a piece of plow steel sandwiched in for a bit. The one with the darker handle is the first one I did and I have intentionally abused it to see if it would hold up. I believe it is just about indestructible. I think the taper on the eye and shape is better on number two, but I believe they both will be good axes. I drew the temper maybe just a little harder than normal for an axe but with the wrought laminated either side of the steel I think it will work ok. Hickory handles.
