I Forge Iron

Wrought iron ship anchor


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When I walked to my local boy scouts group to guide this afternoon, I walked past an old wrought iron ship anchor at the old harbor, like I always do. But today I thought you might want to see this too.

This used to be a booming merchant town throughout the middle ages, and then transitioned into a more fishing oriented town, so it might be an anchor for either of them (I think).

some closeups of the forge welds for the two tails, and one to show the grain of the iron.

If you have more info feel to share it, or discuss some interesting things. 

I thought it was quite interesting to have a piece like this nearby and never realise the significance in material and overal use before getting into smithing.
