Hello!

Yesterday I started new project - pattern welded pipehawk. It is my second attempt to forge pipehawk.

I started with a sketch with dimentions:

 And then I cut pieces of steel for billet, one were made out of 50HF spring steel and S235 low carbon steel, and second out of 50HF and NCV1,

Billets ready for forge welding, the bigger one have  30 layers and 1640 gram of weight, smaller one has 20 layers and 888 grams of weight.

After welding both have 120 layers, I marked and forged the bigger billet into the U-shape

Now is time to forge the pipe:

When the pipe is ready, I improved it's shape and then I cut out piece of smaller billet for a blade.

When everything is alright, it's time for forge welding entire hawk.

At the end of this day I finished the pipe on a lathe.

Thank you guys :)

Now I roughly grinded the surface and marked the top line of hawk

Then I cut and grinded to that line, and marked shape of it
