I Forge Iron

My first axe. Mixed Damascus. 7 pics.


Recommended Posts

The first Axe I’ve ever attempted, fresh out of the etch. Mixed Damascus: 1.25” Cable, and random pattern, forge-welded together. Random is a mix of bold and fine layers (got the idea by reading in many places how Frosty and a few others like bold layers sometimes, and I like higher layer counts, why not both?) I had originally planned on grinding it really clean, just leaving a hint of cable on the eye. However as I was going I decided I liked the look with a few pits/surface inclusions left on there. I think I may enjoy doing axes. Now I just need to figure out a handle?

 

Also first time using the large touchmark I got for Christmas last year
