PederVisti Posted July 19, 2014 Share Posted July 19, 2014 Hello, I just got done with my new forge, and decided the maiden voyage should be an axe of course It started out as a bit of 20x40x100mm mild steel for the body, and 52100 for the business end. I notched the cutting insert ala James Austin (Thanks a bunch btw!), which made welding much easier.The eye was slit and drifted, but one of these days i have to try an assymetric wrap instead (when i build up the skill/courage) I found that my new forge would not stand a chance getting to a welding heat, so i had to do the weld in my old coal forge. I have since then upgraded my burner and some blower piping, and now it's good to go The weight is 460 grams and it has an edge length of 85mm Now i just need to go fetch some ash for the handle. Any input would be appreciated Best regards Peder Visti Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
