Barbed wire

Recommended Posts



Wanted to try agane this wolf tooth pattern whit "box" method, sens it was fresh in my mind....BUT!


This time I used half size iner steel and its 9 bar construction.

I should have done it smaller...start was 38x38x195...its way too big.

It just grows grows.....and its hard to handle.

Welding would be easyer to do half long...about 100mm billet.I think.

And it is enough for lots of different applications.


Bad side of small iner steel is its size after you have bar ready...sens "best" pattern is in middle...

Pattern that I call now barbed wire...it looks like one.


Well..it did not look that good several states of welding and forgin...but I didn wanted to make it to blade..even it was test...everyting turns to blades .. :blink: what is wrong?


Its guite long and slim seax ( blank ) but patter is not bad, I like it at least parts of it.


Feel free to comment.

That is a wicked pattern.

Very nice pattern, I like it.

It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-


For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.

Hi All.


Thank you for kind words.


I did not take pic at billet...but I will try this patter agane soon.

Whit different dimensions, it will work better I think.


Here is drawing to, hope it helps.

And I think you should make billet whit center steel 70% and "box" 30% about...

This way it dosent forge down so much...and end up small square ...and best patter in middle..so might wanto cut it in half and rotate and re weld.
