I Forge Iron

Newbie's first forged blade (raw forging)


Recommended Posts

I recently finished a novice blacksmithing class offered by the local Blacksmithing Association, and had a chance to hammer out my first blade from a piece of coil spring. Here it is fresh from forging, before any filing or grinding with all of its warts and flaws still intact.

It was great fun, and getting involved with these associations is not only a great way to come up the learning curve quickly, but also to get connected with other people that have similar interests and that can help with the things all of us beginners have problems with and don't know how to solve on our own.
