    Axe making tool critique

    Hey guys I just made a slot punch and a drift (almond shaped) in order to use the punch and drift method to forge an axe. I was wondering if you guys could critique them and tell me if you would make any changes. The slotpunch is unfinished but will look like the handled punch up top I got from GSTongs. Obviously I still have some grinding to do but I still have time! I saw this video where a guy drilled 2 holes about the length of his slot punch and then punched through normally. What is the purpose/advantage of this? Does it make it easier to keep the hole straight? Any other general tips on forging an axe in this method will be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot guys. -Jeff F

    3/4” mild steel

    Thanks for the reply guys! I’ve tried calling local shops before and they basically laughed when I asked for a drop, the other place around her wanted $22 bucks for one tiny block of steel. Luckily I called speedy metals and they said they would ship in a small flat rate for me. So I got 2 blocks of mild in the said dimensions for ~$12 shipped! -Jeff

    3/4” mild steel

    I’m looking for 1018 steel to make an axe body from. Does anyone happen to have 3/4”x2”x4” 1018 mild steel? I’ve looked online and the websites have great prices (as low as $4 per piece) yet they say that shipping is $20 with ups. This doesn’t make sense to me considering the bar only weighs about 1.7 pounds and you can fit at least 2 in a small USPS flat rate box for $6.95. Thanks guys! -Jeff

    CPM154 Gyuto and tasmanian blackwood

    Well this is a blade that is stainless steel and done via stock removal don't hate me too much guys! Sometimes high quality stainless is the way to go! I hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on how I can improve my work. Blade: ~7" (177.8mm) cutting edge with CPM154 stainless heat treated by Matthew Gregory (thanks man!) and it is about 2" (50mm) tall allowing for plant of knuckle clearance. I used 0.1" (2.5mm) thick stock and it tapers down to a needle point and the edge is almost at zero. The spine and choil are crowned for comfort. Handle:Wa handle style about 5.125" long (130mm). The bolster is made from black paper micarta to mimic buffalo horn but have complete water resistance. The body portion of the handle is made from a beautiful piece of stabilized curly Tasmanian Blackwood. This stuff looks sort of like Goa wood and the amount of chatoyance it exhibits really is something to admire. Simply put it's a gorgeous piece of wood. Overall this knife is ~12.25" or 311mm and now for some pictures! <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/q74di1XsrqY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YFUrPx_7Hrg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
