Hi to All!

This is my first post on this Forum. Please let me briefly introduce myself.

Blacksmith. I manufacture both blades and other metal works. I show some of them on my blog: http://lipinskimetalart.blogspot.com/

When I was searching for inspirations I often landed on this forum, so I deceided to joinand not only read and watch but post as well.

Many thanks for all of You sharing your knowledge and ideas.


In this topic I will be showing my works. Today I’m gonna present some of my past ones.

Thank you guys for good words.

Actually those are two pictures of the same axe. It is not a replica of any archeoligical find, but my interpretation after watching dozens of them. The body and head are forged from old wrought fibrous iron (I described it here: http://lipinskimetalart.blogspot.com/search/label/Techniczne%2FNarz%C4%99dzia%2FTechnical%2FTools ). The blade was welded of N8E tool steel (0,75-0,85% C + trace other elements like Mn, Si, Cr, Ni and S + P - like 1075 carbon steel). I etched the axe with HNO3.

The axe is looking for a new owner - it's for sale (60USD/50Eur/38GBP). Can I just put an add in proper topic?

I attach 1 more picture of it.


The knife I showed in this category of my blog:



If something is not translated - just scroll down on the bottom and there is option "TRANSLATE" and "choose language".


Currently I'm working on pattern welded kitchen knife - certainly I'll put it here.


Btw. English is not my native language, so be understanding ;-)
