    Forge welded broken back seax

    There is some fine details in there, that is obvious. How long is this undertaking to complete, if I may ask?

    Lady in Black - XVIII single hander

    Nice! did you forge this? now one question, thinking of doing a dagger in the near future. How is the best way to go about grinding those bevels? mine will be forged in, as close as possible. Need to start practicing that i suppose.

    Worth saving files?

    Yep, I agree with Conner, throw em in the forge.

    What did you do in your shop today?

    Made a set of power hammer dies with half 3/8" (9.525mm) fuller / round, for my blacksmithing mentor. Used 2" 1040

    Cable/15N20/1095 Skinner

    That's a pretty sweet little package someone would be happy to own. Edit: I see the cable on the spine, probably through the tang, & 15n20 inthe middle, then 1095 is the edge? at least dominate visuals.

    Simply damascus friction folder

    Nicely done. That is how I do everything, no measurements, no jigs or rests. Just grind, look, feel.. Rinse, repeat.

    Diagonal cross pein I can work with wood, just do not like to. Fills the shop up with dust (everywhere) have to change respirator filters, etc, etc.. Oh, handle is hickory, just used my 5" Metabo hand grinder to fit & grrrind the wood down. Then touch up on the belt sander. Flame hardened & slathered on some boiled linseed oil. Can mods place this glowing head as avatar please?

    Nordic Hunting Knife

    I like this one a bunch, me being 100% Scottish. Not able to read any runes though. At any rate, I like it.

    My take on a Santoku. 01 tool steel, brass brushed handle. Made this a bit smaller & sleek for a woman.

    Tips on forging FOOD grade items

    316 is not a knife steel. There are more than 100 grades of stainless steel. The majority are classified into five major groups in the family of stainless steels: austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex, and precipitation-hardening. Austenitic steels, which contain 16 to 26 percent chromium and up to 35 percent nickel, usually have the highest corrosion resistance. They are not hardenable by heat treatment and are nonmagnetic. The most common type is the 18/8, or 304, grade, which contains 18 percent chromium and 8 percent nickel. Typical applications include aircraft and the dairy and food-processing industries.
