  1. Hand Forged Gouges (Surprise Swap)

    For the 2017 "Shop Made SURPRISE Tool Swap" I forged this set of three incanal wood carving gouges from 1080 steel. I forged the tangs then hammered the curvature with my swage block. I heat treated them in the forge, quenching in oil and tempering at 400 deg F, followed by softening the...
  2. Twin Dragonscale Drawknives

    After seeing the beautiful hand saws Brian of BearKat Wood creates, I offered him a trade for some forging. He took me up on the offer and I set out to make him a fancy drawknife. I initially forged a tiny one just to learn the process, then moved on to making these two. I sent the larger one...
  3. damascus spatula

    I forged this pattern-welded damascus spatula for my Mom's birthday gift. I offered her a knife or any other thing I could forge, and this is what she chose. Never made one before, it was lots of flattening work with a cross pein hammer and a ton of grinding. 1080 and 15n20 steel, hardened...
  4. Copper Rose w/ Glass Display Case

    New pictures now up. so this is another attempt at a rose, though this time i went for the traditional rose, not a prairie rose. This meant it would be much more intricate, with more details and petals. It actually went from around 8 petals on the prairie rose to about 20 petals on the...
  5. another fancy chef knife

    Again, not a ton of wood in this project but I wanted to show it to my wood friends here. I recently finished this pattern-welded integral bolster chef knife. I started with 8 layers of 1080 and 15n20 steel, forge welded them together, twisted the whole mess as much as I could, then forged to...
  6. Wood Anvil Stand

    My weekend construction of a wood stand stand for my Diy Traintrack Anvil View on YouTube
  7. Ya think I maybe got a little carried away?

    ...and there are 5 more 'ugly' toolboxes in my work shop, filled with tools. :D I didn't make these all recently, about half of them I had done over the past year or so. The long one on the top left is my main toolbox, which goes with me everywhere. I recently made a copy of it...
  8. Making a large axe head and handle

    In this project I make a large axe in the folded axe style. I took a 10mm (3/8'') steel plate and folded it after which I inserted a piece of high - carbon steel and forge welded it altogether. I made the handle out of ash which had a nice figure on it. To test the axe I chopped down an old...

  10. hand forged "perfect handle" screwdriver for swap

    I'm just starting to learn some blacksmithing as a side hobby, so I hand forged this "perfect handle" style screwdriver for the 2016 screwdriver swap and sent it out to my new friend Andy / fatandy2003 . The scales are dyed maple burl, glued with CA glue and pinned with brass rod. The steel...
  11. hand forged dandelion digger

    I made this dandelion digger for a Mother's Day gift, including forging the steel myself. The handle is walnut with a brass ferrule, finished with shellac and wax. The steel is O1 drill rod that I hardened and tempered to just below a spring so it wouldn't snap when prying. I tried it out...
  12. hand forged chain damascus socket chisel

    Continuing my attempts at blacksmithing, I hand forged this socket chisel/slick from a bicycle chain welded to an O1 steel backer. Heat treated it myself in the forge and my kitchen oven. The handle is redheart, finished with shellac and wax. This project was inspired by the Peter Ross DVD...
  13. damascus jewelers hammer

    Another pseudo-wood project from the fires of Mt. Bobasaurus. I wanted to try forging my own damascus steel, so I made this low-layer-count (aka simple) billet from 1080 and 15n20 forge-welded together then made a little hammer from the end of it. It was a lot of work doing by hand, wish I had...

You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make...
