How to achieve a peened texture on both sides of blade?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so I've been using a ball peen and trying to leave a forge finished, peened texture towards the spine of my blades. I'm happy with the results when I do the first side, but then when I flip it over to get the other, the anvil mostly flattens the texture out and erases it on the first side. I tried using wood instead of my anvil for the second side, to try to preserve it, but of course it just burst into flames.

I feel like there's probably an obvious way around this that I'm not seeing. Any ideas?

Ignore the flaming wood?  That's pretty much it, unless you make a spring fuller with ball bearings as the contacts.

Or just don't hit as hard.
