Brian Shafer Posted December 31, 2007 Share Posted December 31, 2007 This method may not be very practical for everybody out there but here it goes. I work in the oilfields and getting suitable wire rope for knife making is pretty easy. In fact I know were about 60 feet is just setting on the ground begging to be turned into knives. Anyhow, my forge is modified to hold a jig that allows me to twist the cable while still in the forge. It is a pipe vice mounted on a slide that allows me to move it back and forth or totally remove it. The idea came from Gene Osbourns dvd on making cable damascus. No Thor, no hammer. Know Thor, know hammer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
