Benona blacksmith Posted July 22, 2020 Share Posted July 22, 2020 I started this project last December and just picked it up again today. It Started with several different grades of wrought iron. Some of which had a fair amount of carbon. forg welded into a solid billet. cut into three pieces. Added some wrought iron wagon tire between layers. Welded and forged to ¾ inch square and twisted. Here is a test etch. I then wrapped this around a wrought iron core. For the steel edge I chose to use railroad track. I wrapped this around the core and had troubles getting the tip to weld up. My solution was to cut a section from the tip and do a fish mouth weld. And here it is as of this afternoon. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
