well... damn... junior year... yeah. bleh.
anyway, ive been stock piling some projects recently and i feel like i should post them on here, just cause the railroad spike axe is the like only recent thing Ive made. my gallery is like a year out of date and i am getting kinda proud of my work.
For my fans of smithing i will be posting stuff but no WIPs. just finished products. my biggest news is IM GETTING AN ANVIL AND PROPANE FORGE SOON!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. i plan on making many knifes and even maaayyybeeee trying a short sword since those are held in such mysticisim by the average person. the forge i'm told can easily reach welding temps and so some more damascus is in the near future aswell.
i think i might shift my focus for a while tward axes because i am still very green in making, shapeing and tempering them. i just made a tiny little 1lb rail road spike axe (highcarbon this time) to remove bark with and it has a solid walnut handle. its only like 8 inches long and i got to use coal smoke to color the head. im really happy with how its turned out, and i just have to sharpen and sand down the handle yet.
list of things i want to make before summer;
smaller draw knife
stock of nails, s hooks, necklace and earrings peices
chain saw damascus
rail road spike hot punches and chisels
"iron jaw" hardy tool
i also have been given a Patriarch's Militant (a religious order about as close to the Free Masons as you can be without actually being a mason) sword to restore. gotta remake the pommel.
