Here's my take on aSwedish pattern cross pain. Finished this one up a while back. The body has been left rough from the forge, the shoulders have been ground and polished to provide some contrast. #blacksmith #forged #toolporn #hammer #madeintheusa

Flyby of the finished Falchion! Who knows of the best recourses/books for learning about Viking swords? No promises about whether it’s the project up next - but I REALLY want to make one inspired by historical examples soon!

I made a little more progress on the stake anvil. I decided it needed a little something extra to spruce it up, so I made little "shields" for the sides. These side shields are quite common in extant examples. These will be chased with some ornamentation before being finished. I also started a stump for it. White oak with some gnarly cracks. I made a band for the top, and will glue and screw some 1/8" plate to the bottom to prevent the checking from spreading. I will also chisel some heave chamfers on the corners. This stake/stump will be available once completed. Interested parties please contact us for pricing. #metalsmith #blacksmith #blacksmithing #toolporn #anvil #forge #forged #metalart #madeinusa🇺🇸

The tree on the right, bottom to top;
-20” swage block-490, with 419 cast iron stand
-704 South German double horn with side shelf -397 South German double horn with side shelf -290 South German double horn with side shelf -70 German double horn PFP
total weight: 2,370

The tree on the left, bottom to top:
-623 Mousehole
-583 Peter Wright
-375 Brooks
-165 Peter Wright

Finishing up one last batch of tools for the holidays. Claw hammers in various weights, and decorated forging hammers, as well as a couple of hatchets. These will all be listed on the website early next week.

Up for sale is a stunning 214 pound “Bavarian” pattern anvil. Carried on it’s brow is some wonderful scalloped border ornamentation, as well as a date; 1841.
As we have gone over before, each region had their own pattern of anvil. Swiss, Polish, Bohemian, Bavarian, North German, South German… the list goes on and on. Each anvil had it’s own distinct style, traits, and sometimes even function.

So, what makes up a Bavarian pattern? The list below is the typical makeup of one. One might call them an extreme and grotesque version of an Austrian pattern. They carry many of the same features, but more severe in every way. -A heavily angled “brow” jutting out from the face
-Extra deep and grotesque “church windows”
-Stepped feet, usually 2 feet, but sometimes 3. The feet will flare out wider side to side. -They can be hornless, or have one round horn. In rare cases, they can have two horns.
This anvil is for sale; interested persons please email us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for pricing. We can ship reasonably, and local pickup is always welcome.

I love big vises! This is a Holland's 18 (8" wide jaws) on the original rail road base. The vise stand combo are over 1,000 pounds. The vise and stand are both stamped AT & SF RR. Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Rail Road. The vise riding piggy back is a Starrett 326 a 215 pound 6" vise.

These are pictures I took before harvesting these hammers out of this barn. They had been sitting there unused for over 25 years....I have already rebuilt each of them and sent them all across the US and they are all being used again!

And it's Done! Very happy with this one! It's been a while since I did an Otzi. The blade is forged 3" long, 5/32" thick and forged from 1095. The handle is Red Oak with brass pins and an epoxy soaked jute wrapping. The overall length is 7.5". I'd love to hear what you think! This one is a commission piece, but if you'd like to place an order let me know!

Here's a simple "hand and a half" size hatchet made with an offset blade for hewing. I wanted to try out a new form I had in mind so didn't bother to clean up the hammer marks...Though it's not usually my preference, I don't mind them on this piece. I usually prefer tidier forging, but sometime highlighting the forging process can be a nice alternative. #axe #hammer #broadaxe #blacksmith #blacksmithing #toolporn #madeinmilwaukee #madeinusa #anvil

SOLD
Here’s a lovely 298 pound forged French double horn “Pig” anvil. So called due to it’s four individual feet, low squat body and adorable curly tail…horn. Forged in France in 1837.

So what makes up a French anvil? Well first of all, there are many different styles of French anvils. Single horn, double horn, hornless…etc. Some have feet, some have a solid body, some are a completely different shape altogether, there is too many to accurately list. In the case of the “pig” style, it is usually identified by a few trademark characteristics; The (four) individual feet, a very short and stout body, a very wide face, and quite stout and robust horn(s). Compared to a 298# “London pattern” this anvil is likely 2-3” shorter. It also has a face that is likely 2”+ wider as well. Many French “Pigs” have (cursive) writing on the front stating who the maker was as well as the town of manufacture, and the year and usually the weight in kilograms.
This anvil has a drop down to both horns. Rebound is good and the face is clean with minor pitting. It has a side exit hardie hole and a pritchel hole on the square horn. The edges are very clean and useable. The front of it has a lovely chased “mustache” around the feet and a elegant crease forged in above it. Dated 1837, and also stamped 137K for Kilograms. (1KG = 2.2 pounds) There is faint stamping of where a makers named was in cursive, though it’s difficult to read.
This anvil is for sale, $1900 obo. Located in Milwaukee, WI. Local pickup is welcome, or we can arrange shipping on your dime. Interested persons please email us at cergolforge@hotmail.com for additional pics.

Here's a recent chisel I made. The body/socket are wrought iron with 5160 forge welded on for the bit. The handle I turned out of Birdseye maple. Turning birdseye, I always get a bit of chatter on the knots. I decided to leave the chatter marks for a bit of character on this piece, rather than sanding off. The copper butt is just s piece of copper pipe, fit into a tenon. #anvil #blacksmith #blacksmithing #toolporn

Here's a different take on a framing hammer. It has a taller rectangular face that is generously crowned. It's quite forward heavy to help sink bigger nails with ease. The claws are short and sharp. #hammer #blacksmith #toolporn #carpenter #forge #forged #madeinmilwaukee #metalart

Rebound testing on the new ACME anvil- using a 5/8” ball bearing, am I doing it wrong or is the rebound just superb?
Stay tuned for some forge videos later today

All hail the almighty V block!
Blacksmiths are armed with a massive arsenal of tools, here's a remarkably useful and versatile one.
A V block has many uses. To name a few:
-tapering pipe/forging pipe
-isolations
-swaging triangular shaped pieces
-a support tool to hold other tooling -chamfering
-truing pieces back up to square
-a means of support for square pieces to work on the corners
They can be used by themselves, or in conjunction with top tools or spring tools.
Much of the challenge of forging is figuring out a means of supporting your work piece. A V block supports it on two planes, thus containing it. When used under a power hammer, or hand hammer, there is now three points of contact instead of two. This forces material into self, as opposed to spreading out/widening.
V blocks can be a simple 90 degree V, or any angle under the sun for specific means of support. There is also the very handy tapered V, in which making and cleaning up tapered rounds becomes unbelievably simple.
Many people ask how I do some of the work on the corners/shoulders of my hammers-this is how. Not rocket science, just a simple means of support to allow work to be done on the corners.
As time allows I hope to write more posts on simple tooling, tips and tricks.

Here's another forged anvil in progress. Had a bit of fun on the proportions of this one. A high and narrow waist, and wide flared out feet give this one a more curvy and extreme look, though not unlike some of the later Arm & Hammers that were produced. Ill be finishing this one up in the coming days. It's already spoken for. #hammer #metalsmith #anvil #toolporn #forge #forged #madeinmilwaukee #usa #metalart

Just finished up this one! It's forged from 80crv2 with a torched hickory handle with brass pins and lanyard tube. It has a leather lanyard with a white tail deer antler bead. This one was a commission piece.
