I was determined to get good at this when I first started blacksmithing.  After doing about 25 of them I realized that I was still a long way off from being able to pay my annual taxes to king Henry and got discouraged.  I never have made one that I would consider great. 

 

I should get back into trying, but this is the sort of thing that is easier with coal than gas in my opinion.  I don't have a coal option anymore.

Actually years ago the by far best arrowsmith around was Mark Stretton, my friend who also made a DVD forging medieval arrowheads - his process makes about the best socket there is.

I was thinking that an induction forge would be awesome for this. Now, if I only had one :D
