Triskele

Recommended Posts

Between heats working on making some tongs, I forged this guy. Again, no welding, all forged from one piece of 1" by 3/8" by 2.5" long. It's about 2.5" round.

That just looks like a lot of fun. A great trivet for the kitchen table.

Looks great. I agree you did a nice job on making the three arms look very similar.

thanks guys. These are cool, fun to make and they have a lot of potential for different things. Trivets like Mike said, legs or a base for a candle holder, different things.

thanks Dave. I am thinking of incorporating this as a guard for a long thin stabby slashy sword.

That's really cool Sam! Please do run some pictures next time. I'm interested in how you split that and ended up with three even legs.

while i was looking at hammer styles for yesterdays project, i saw a trivet in the mastermyr kit, not as nice as yours.... seems they've been around for a long time

you know what would be cool... make another but smaller.. and next time your at that fellas place with the big presses, you could press that form into your forging... then you'd have a sort of triskele symbol in the side of your work .... not sure if it'd work but it would be interesting if it did

Nice Job Sam. That is a great way to stay tunned up on your skills. I will have to try one Just to see if I can get close to what yours looks like.

Warning, hijack...

 

 

Those 2 "unknown" at the bottom both look like ax drifts, to me... unless the scales are the same across all images, in which case they're too big. Certainly evokes the thought, though.
