I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

That's a beautiful piece, I love the filleting at the tine bases. Are you making complete sets? That is one very marketable toasting fork.

I see lots of possibilities, consider the concept adopted, thank you sir.

Madam or Ms. your preference please? A ladysmith's work explains a lot. I love seeing women in the shop there is a whole different aesthetic that's a refreshing change and appealing. I wish there were more ladysmiths posting here.

Oh, do you have a preferred web-handle or nick or do WE get to come up with one for you? :D

No, I didn't assume Frosty it was a given being a Frost. My folks told me to get used to being called Jack so a very brief period when I started 1st. grade I did. Then I found out who Jack Frost is and didn't want any association with the trickster so I choose Frosty instead. Funny thing there were some guys I knew all through school that in college still insisted I'm Jack. Funny how some things just stick in a person's brain.

Oh, I CAN be looooong winded but I try to be entertaining about it. :)

I agree.  Beautiful lines.  I sometimes I have clientele that don't drive 1 ton welding trucks.  Always good to have alternative styles.

Actually something similar would make my son's grandmother pretty happy for x-mas.

Forging queen eh, we can start there. Hmmmm, "highness" . . . HighCarboness"? Naw that worse than sucks it's so derivative. A clear MS.   Use hydraulics? Mpress?  . . . Maybe.

Stubborn's a given you can't work steel with fire and hammer without more than a bit of stubborn. If we were to call you Stubborn everybody'd think we were talking to them. We'll just make the observation when appropriate.  Guess I'll have to give it some thought, till then I like Jennifer and JP. I've never known a Jennifer I didn't get along with.

The gang should start perking on nick names, I hope anyway. Like puns?

The story of the Lucky part of my IFI web handle can be found in the prayer section. I AM a lucky guy.

That's one stylish toast fork! Love the symmetry and the fine finish. A lot of hammer work from  1/4 X 1. Thanks for posting, Jennifer.

Thanks,,

Not to bad forging wise..    maybe 30minutes of forge time.. 2 minutes with the file and another few with the wire brush.. This was made in the old blacksmith trailer and the floor would bounce about 1/2" with every hammer blow..  

Your welcome.. 

Since you guys are liking these.. Here is the fork, as forged and here is a pair.. each fork going to a different person..

Make me feel like a wimp. My main hammers are a 2lb drilling hammer and a ballpien that's probably 24oz or so. Only on occasion do I really reach for my 3 or 4lb hammers.
