James W Posted January 6, 2010 Share Posted January 6, 2010 Hello all, just thought I'd quickly introduce myself, I'm completely new to the world of bladesmithing but have taken the first steps recently by going on an introductory bladesmithing course run by Owen Bush - which I really enjoyed, I learnt a great deal and have definately been inspired to continue to learn... I don't have a workshop yet, or even any tools, but there is a space at the bottom of the garden just waiting for a forge to be built there... Here's a snap of the first two blades I've made (with some help from Owen!) I went a bit overboard with some bad hammering on the second one, it started off with more of a leaf-shape, but the edges got too thin with over-hammering so it's ended up smaller and with a more angular shape... and those surface marks are pretty deep... still, it's all learning - and I do like learning new things... and these forums contain an absolute wealth of information and some amazing things in the show and tell sections... Looking forward to being part of this community and getting to know you all, Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
