Damascus pipehawk WIP
Rafał Garbacik posted a topic in Show and TellHello! Yesterday I started new project - pattern welded pipehawk. It is my second attempt to forge pipehawk. I started with a sketch with dimentions: And then I cut pieces of steel for billet, one were made out of 50HF spring steel and S235 low carbon steel, and second out of 50HF and NCV1, Billets ready for forge welding, the bigger one have 30 layers and 1640 gram of weight, smaller one has 20 layers and 888 grams of weight. Few pictures of forging using power hammer, fluxing and heating up. Billets ready for grinding, cutting and welding After welding both have 120 layers, I marked and forged the bigger billet into the U-shape Now is time to forge the pipe: When the pipe is ready, I improved it's shape and then I cut out piece of smaller billet for a blade. When everything is alright, it's time for forge welding entire hawk. The pipehawk after forging: At the end of this day I finished the pipe on a lathe. Now it's weight is 890 grams. Enjoy
