My first forged blade

Post by 12acrehome on Wed Dec 09, 2015 2:50 am

I'm sharing this here for public access. Right up front I want to say I'm not really satisfied with the shape, and will have to try to figure out pre-forge shapes to get what I'm after. On the plus side this thing is nearly razor sharp and was only ground enough to remove the scale and some occlusions.

If you search "one brick forge" you can see the basic design of my little mini forge.

One of the building plans that I sell is for a bellows.  It is an amazing bit of kit that my engineer friend developed from an Asian design.  It delivers air on both the push and the pull stroke.  



These bellows were originally developed hundreds of years ago to obtain a high enough forge temperature to forge swords.

We might do a little business FF, lets see how well I learn this forging stuff first though.
