Finally Forging Knives Again


Recommended Posts

Thanks guys.
Doug, don't break anything except bad habits. I had to go back to the basics. To gain back some strength and work on my hammer grip "Hoffi style", I would lift a 2# hammer while watching TV at night. I tried hitting a piece of wood , but the "feel " was wrong so I used some hot mild steel. Look at each hammer strike. In the beginning, 5 minutes was all I could do. Bruce is right about a bad hit, it will get your attention quickly!
