Details are so satisfying! I put hexagonal tapers on the back ends of these 5/16ths drifts for class at @thesteelyard ! They got smushed within a few heats, but I’m still glad I put’em there!

We made egg spoons in class, so of course we had to test them! And no, a Viking axe isn’t a good fork substitute. :/ #blacksmith#blacksmithing #bladesmith #axes #viking#cooking #handmade #eggs #maker#make #badass

Terrified Egg Spoon is scared of the forge! I made this egg spoon (fancy ladle to fry eggs in) and it was calling out to be a face, so I made it one!

I finished the forging on another asymmetric wrapped axe today! It was so much work, that I really needed a pint at the end. A pint of ice cream, that is! ;P And no, I didn’t finish the whole thing.

Had a lovely time forging bottle openers with my students at @thesteelyard ! Also, asymmetrically wrapped Viking-style axes are fun! Can’t wait to finish this one. 😀

That feeling when you order a pizza with half pepperoni and half mushroom but this happens… Florian the Dragon was so excited for his mushroom, too. #firstworldproblems #blacksmith#blacksmithing #dragon #dragons #cute #tiny#handmade #maker #make

All students shall bow before me! I am Willow Earlyborn of the House Zietman, The Often Burnt, Queen of the Anvils and the First Femmes, Lady Regnant of the Seven Forges, Knowledgeable Instructor (Islay at The Steel Yard said it, so it’s true!) and Mother of Silly Dragons!

I do not suffer fools gladly… ;D

If anyone knows who the original artist is of the painting, please let me know? I really like it! 😀
