  1. So forged this at the last demo of the year. 1018 body and Rasp for cutting edge. 3/8X1.5X10" or so.

  2. Hello, I'm just looking for some help with folded hatchets(made out of old farriers rasps). On my first try I got it all shaped up and went for the weld. I cleaned it off with a wire brush then tried it. Absolutely could not get it to stick. Now i think this one was because i didn't have any flux. On the second on though I went through the same process but used borax as flux but could still not get it to weld.?!?!? Please Help
  3. After a few setbacks, I finally have figured out a true one-piece hatchet fit for camping, backpacking, survival.... The hatchet is hand forged from one piece of leaf spring with the handle wrapped in parachord. One of the design elements that the customer wanted was to be able to also throw it, so the weight distribution had to be factored in. Also, the blade is long enough to meet local legal carry laws. This hatchet can handle everything from wood carving to blazing to clearing saplings with one swing.
  4. Wrought iron has such a beautiful look. The life and lines of the wrought bring a special dimension to the body of work. This axe represents my first successful wrought iron axe body with a carbon cutting edge. The trick for success was to keep the cross section of the eye very thick. I started out with about 700 grams of weight and ended around 400 but I was able to keep that cross section quite thick. It was still tricky to shape the eye without the wrought crumbling but the wrought I used for this is very good quality. The blade shape is shark inspired, hammer head to be more precise. The cutting edge feels like a shark fin or head protruding out of a sea of wrought iron. It is shaped much like a fin and comes complete with a mouth full of teeth in the underside. It throws like a dream and cuts like sharpened shark teeth. It’s ready to be-head the toughest of fish. I forged this from some of the anchor chain I ordered from Craig Hashimoto. It's some lovely stuff. Holds together well and has some great patterns.
  5. This is my second RR spike hawk, this time using the head end of the spike for the cutting edge. The last one I mis-centered the punch, and though I did go through with it (due to time limits), I really wish I had more time to start over. Thanks Mr. Florianek- really should have listened and started over immediately. I have learned my lesson. Always listen to Petr . The blade took me about three days, and the handle only one. As I said, blade is HC RR spike- not sure about the handle. I recently watched the Ulfberht documentary and have been fascinated with Viking weaponry, so this has been patterned after one. With this make I think I'm feeling a few sparks about my chin (hint, hint!) The blade is normalized twice, edge hardened once, but I did not bother tempering. Am I supposed to? I secured the head by gradually tapering the handle, the hammering the head on using the hardie hole in my anvil (yes I have a real one now) to get a good fit, then secured with the tip of an old broken knife as a wedge. I used to do a lot of chisel carving, so I tried my hand here. Viking w' beard on one side, deer on the other. I took advantage of a knot in the wood and gave the Viking a knotty hat. I'm actually not quite finished yet; still going to rub in some oil to the wood as well as polish the blade a bit. I'll probably experiment with more carvings too. Anyway, comments and critiques welcome!
