I Forge Iron

Made from an old crowbar critique please


Recommended Posts

Thank you for the input. Yes I heat treated with used motor oil and it hardened up nicely. Yes I get the bit about no guard for the blade. Started out just seeing if it would draw out nicely and ended up with this. It feels good in the hand.  Thanks again for the input.

As stated, I would mainly just worry about your hand slipping forward during use. It could potentially injure the user. Just as a recommendation for the next one, maybe try grinding/forging/filing finger grooves in? If lined up properly, they make it feel great in the hand too. Just my two cents. Looks pretty good though, nice work.
