I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Some throwers made out of old carpenters hammers.  Each is different, as experimenting with shape- the one closest is my sons fav- he's 17 and was the striker and helper.

Eyes were drifted bigger, trad hammer wedge - next set i make will be tapered eyes like a pick axe/ regular hawk.

Rudimentary heat treat in oil from critical, tempered by heating eye till the  edge was brown- not very hard a file will bite but still hard enough to resist a bit of misuse.

The short handle is from old hammer and the other 2 were the bar from a closet. Rasped, hand sand, fire and oil finish

Great fun so far- not my nicest work, but we just wanted to play!
