Eric Bost Posted October 28, 2013 Share Posted October 28, 2013 Hello all from North Carolina! This is my first entry to Bladesmiths Forum. I am a beginner and am working diligently to create my forge so i can start learning the Art of blacksmithing. Im 29, and have a LONG road ahead of me to learn this ancient art, but i thought you guys might want to see what kind of stuff i like to do.. Its rough..i know..please dont be too harsh..haha The metal used is Plain steel bar stock from Home Depot, the guard and pommel are from a old furniture bit a neighbor was cutting up, and the wrap is "magic tape" over crude oak slabs and copper pins. The beads are hand ground deer antler with a antler tip on one over leather. Me and the wife call this "Pheonix"..you know the story.. I work on my front porch with a small drill vise and occasionally i get to use the neighbors workshop until i can put my forge together.. I have a anvil made of a old bit of railroad and ill be upgrading as funds permit to allow better projects..any help is appreciated..lol "We the unwilling, led by the unknowing; have done so much with so little for so long; that we can now do practically anything with nothing.." - Wizards Prayer Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
