HammarBear - Forging 007 (1 April 2020)

I did a bit more forging with Kody, the Ferrier on sunday afternoon into the evening. I was able to make some progress on my knives. As you can see, this is the Fillet knife. There was previously quite a bit of curve in the blade, but I've reduced that to what you see here.

.

I wish my phone camera picked up the glow of the forge better than it does. This is such a cool view.

.

This is a small knife I'm making, using extra stock I had. Not sure where the design goes from here, but that's the beauty of learning as I go.

.

Using Kody's filing stand as a clamp for cooling knives, I was able to let them all cool without burning myself again.

.

I'll leave you with this. After some use of the forge, the KaoWool (sp?) insulation is falling apart and will need to be replaced soon. That will be a post on it's own, so stay tuned for that.

More to come.
