Caden_Vekk Posted September 30, 2013 Share Posted September 30, 2013 I've been a stalker of knife making forums for years now, I've always been meaning to make a small forge and just start beating some metal 'til I can't feel my hands anymore. I still haven't made a forge, but I did go to Trackrock Hammer-In in the North Georgia mountains this past weekend and I've FINALLY gotten back into forging. I did some ornamental blacksmithing when I was 14-15 and have always been into the whole idea behind taking some bit of metal and making something useful out of it. I drove up to the mountains and not an hour into me being there a guy by the name of John, I believe, handed me a 1.5x6x 1/8th(?)in piece of 1095. He just let me swing away and would answer any questions he could if I had any. Not a bad forging job for my first time forging in about 10yrs. A guy helped me through the heat treating since it was 1095, as it stands, It's been through quenching and a stabalization cycle, I still need to do a tempering cycle and see what comes of it. If that all works out I should be golden to start on the draw filing. Here's what it looks like as it stands The stats are as follows: 4 5/8 Long 1 5/8 Wide 2 1/4 Clip 4mm spine Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
