Today at work I found this thang, ground it down to fit my Hardie Hole and used it to achieve the tang in the next picture. Pretty happy with it. Super fun stuff. Still working on the basics though.. #knifemaking #handforged #forged #knife #maybethiswillwork #chimpanzee #craftsmanship #outdoors #badass #coilspring #hunting #woodworking #metal #metalarts #metalworking #smackdown #sc #hotashell #knifesale #knifecollection #anvil #daily #csk #usa #wompwomp 🔥🇺🇸🔪👻⚒🍻🤘🏼🇺🇸

How about a hammer post? Most of these are custom hammers. Left to right:
4lb “Lamey Special” from Nathan Robertson of Jackpine Forge, a 2-3lb sawyers hammer (never weighed it), a Japanese pattern hammer from @calvin.garland.3, a 3lb curved doghead from Nathan, a 4lb Tai Goo hammer, a pair of curved peen Swedes in 2 and 3lb weights from Nathan, a 2.2lb Swede from Peddinghaus, a 3.5lb Swede from @j.l.burrell_toolmaker, a set block, then a small German pattern hammer from Peddinghaus.
I have other hammers at the post vise. I use them all for different tasks. The Lamey special is an English rounding hammer, I use it for heavy stock reduction mostly. The sawyers hammer I use for planishing and straightening, and for thinning out edges. I use the Japanese hammers for detail work, typically for choils. I use the Tai Goo hammer for drawing out material directionally and with a quickness. The curved Swedes I use for specific tasks or when they are handy. The Peddinghaus Swede I use often for a lot of things. The 3.5lb Swede is my main hammer, and I use it for most of my forging work, until needs get particular or the work is too delicate. Then, I move to the small German hammer and the set block, this is how I forge plunges in now.
The next YouTube videos I do will be about heat treat, then when the weather breaks I will make some more forging videos, with lessons learned and new (for me) techniques for moving metal with hand tools for bladesmithing.

Little santoku in 1095. Hefty trigger grip with poly/burl handle from @burlsnwood. This one feels great in the hand and has a beveled choil for a proper pinch grip. Sold.

Here is a test etch on hunter. What kind of handle should I put on it. Walnut? Mesquite? Pecan? Antler? #damascus #texasknifemaker #handforged #texasmade

I proudly present SDF # 00001 my first forged blade first forged guard and the first hidden tang knife I've ever made. It's not the prettiest seax I've ever seen. Honestly the longer I look at it the more I find wrong with it. The bevels aren't symmetrical, about 2 inches down from the point the blade takes a subtle plunge forward,the guard is off center by about 1/16 and the blade is quite a bit thinner than I meant for it to be. Overall for having forged a blade and guard though with absolutely no instructions beyond the YouTube videos I've watched and watching almost every episode of #forgedinfire and absorbing every tip trick and bit of info I could. I'm pretty damn proud of what I've accomplished and I know very specifically some areas I need to improve on but I feel like i'm off to a good start. I still need a lot of practice in a lot of areas so if anyone has any suggestions, tips, tricks, or input of any sort I'd love to hear it #knifemaking #knifeaddict #knives #knifemaker #knifeporn #knifenut #seax #vikingknife #vikingshit #amateur #bladesmith #handforged #makersgonnnamake #learningisfun #firstofmany

I broke my own records in production today, but still didn't quite make my ideal goals, which were obviously ambitious. I accomplished 69.7% of my overall production goal for the day, at about 85% of the ideal rate, while maintaining good quality in the work, which is super important to me. These numbers are both encouraging and disappointing, and breaking them is the next challenge. I also need to look at my pricing structure again. 😏

Digging Kingdom Armory's Rydbom Heritage Collection. Dave got this English felling aze head that was hand forged in the 1800's and completely restored it along with giving it a sprinkle of that Kingdom Armory style. Boletus Trinity in Canada then hung it on an handcrafted white ash handle. Now this piece is ready to serve for another couple hundred years! #kingdomarmory #rydbomheritagecollection #vintagetools #customknives #handforged #boletustrinity
