First Tong project...
Nflanders posted a topic in Beginners PlaceStarted making my first pair of tongs as my forge starts to come together. Took some 1/2" round stock from HD, and just winged it... Also forged a punch to go with them to make the holes for the pins... Coming together pretty well, looking forward to finishing them up next week...
Elias Sideris posted a topic in Show and TellThis knife belongs to a close friend, who likes cloudy contemplation and rainy dronescapes and layers on layers of sky, dirt, and the mist in between. The blade is forged of Aldo Bruno's 1095, clay-hardened under the supervision of Matt Venier. The handle is carved moose antler, cow horn, desert ironwood Jeff Pringle found, and stacked birch bark that my uncle collected. The ferrule is silver and the pommel cap is salvaged wrought iron from Warner, New Hampshire. The leather is tooled using only a knife and punches that I forged and filed out of 1084 (except my lantern touchmark). All organic materials are fully sealed with a beeswax-linseed oil mix, for misty morning solitary transcendence of time. Thanks for looking! As always, a ridiculous amount of thanks to everyone who has helped me learn anything. Super thanks to Matt, without whom I probably wouldn't have gotten a hamon for years. Thanks also to Jeff for the ironwood (and everything else), thanks to Petr for teaching me almost all of the construction techniques I used, thanks to New Hampshire for most of the organic materials, and as always, thanks to this forum for being the most inclusive and educational creative community I have ever been a part of.
