I Forge Iron

First knife on new anvil


Recommended Posts

My wife bought me a new anvil back in March, but I hadn't used it yet due to lack of an appropriate stand. For some reason I just got the irresistible urge to finally use it, so I rigged up a completely inappropriate stand for it. It let me get some hammering in on it though. Just finished forging to shape a quick little neck knife out of a nub of steel off a bush hog blade. Using this vs my railroad track really makes me wish I had gotten up the gumption to figure out a stand sooner. Everything just worked better, and having a legitimate horn was world changing when it came time to shape the tang. The steel moves so much easier as well.

Nice neck knife blank Nate. I too had a railway track anvil to start off with and have now got a proper anvil. A 1945 english anvil. The difference is phenomenal. I was lucky to get an oak stump for the railway one and an ash stump for the real anvil.
