Some Action pics

Recommended Posts

Hello guys

 

Just want to post some pics from the work my friend Cyrus and I did today.

 

Cyrus has forged out a Wootz. He did something about 25 heat cycles today....that is unbeliveable how less this material is moving....

 

I forged some 416 layers Damascus and made some torsoin damascus.

 

I hope you like this pics.

 

Best Regards Murat

Hello folks!

 

It was a good day, we had lots of fun. But I think Murat had more fun than me 'cause he could see that things are developing, just the opposit the this not moving cake.

 

Space is good, especially the height it should be around 18-20 feet heigh. Well, with regards to the height of the hammer, it works but if you hammer a lot it would be nice to move it a bit further up.

 

The anvil is an old german good quality and heavy anvil.

 

Regards, Cyrus

Hello guys

 

I dont forge every day but I think you guys are right.

 

Maybe I will put the Hammer higher because it is easyer to see the billets from the side.

 

The Shop is very new I just have this shop for 12 weeks now. I have another Shop where I make my knives in the cellar from my house.

 

But I hope to bring some new toys in the forge shop in the next year ;-)

 

Regards Murat

@ Sam

 

Ty is right the hammer is a little Reiter/Kuhn air hammer. He is not that big but he works very fine ;-)

Hi Bill,

 

you are really not too far away, maybe we can do a bit of damascus forging or steel melting this sommer. But then you better come up for a whole day. Maybe we can do both.

 

Murat what do you think?

 

Regards, Cyrus
