True wrought iron is precious, you work with what you can get! I spent the day with two strikers, working down some massive old nautical chains into useable stock. I’m tired… 😴 That’s my 900 gram forging hammer for size. 😀

Some glamour shots of my first damascus #knife with a #forgefriend on the back! It’s a multibar twist construction in 15n20 and 1084, and I had to make the tiniest set of punches for the little fella on the back. It’s etched in pickle juice, cuz… well, I’m pickle rick!
