A VERY happy 13 year old, almost 3 years ago. I believe this was taken on day 5 of my time with Alec Steele. Alec is a very good teacher, and a very personable, good man, he had also just turned 18 at that time. Just a fun post for today.

Final result of the “Evolution of Tool Making” at NAIT college in Edmonton Alberta!
No one bothered to take any really nice pictures of the final result which was funny because we took quite a few during the class.

Most of the Rounding hammer collection. The one on the Right is the first hammer I had ever made, about 4 years ago!

Another week, another busy Sunday at the Lofotr Viking Museum is over and I look at the scattered artefacts around the forge.

This week's crop includes a bunch of blades. Some plain steel and some laminated, since I was testing out some of the recently scavenged wrought iron and steel.

Also a bunch of engraving, carving and embossing tools which will come into use as we work on the chieftain's sax.

With that done, it is time I get back to writing the weekly report for the blog. (Expect much ado about dead whales.)

Who snagged their first post vise?
This guy!
Can use some love, and a couple little repairs, but a fine addition to the always heavier (better) iron tools!

It was really cool to see this 1B Nazel hammer at the Museum of Making. It is in Mint condition! The ram weighs about 75 pound on this one.

Ever warp a knife blade? It sucks. You do all that work and the blade comes out of the quench hard but with a slight bow. Some would take a look at it and go back to the forge and reheat for another try but there is an easier way that for me never fails. Don’t you dare put it in the post vice. It’s not a sword. Take the blade and use three c clamps to secure it to a flat bit of sacrificial L bracket at least the length of the knife. Secure it at each end snug. Use the third c clamp and place it where the bow is. Don’t tighten to tight or the blade might snap. Just give it enough to let it know where it needs to go. Now put it through an oven temper at 400 for an hour or two. When it comes out your blade will be straight. #bladesmith #blacksmithingtools #blacksmithing #blacksmith

I’ve been having troubles with my Alldays skipping beats and not hitting medium blows ever since I got it, so I’ve been experimenting with different speeds, as you can see too fast is not working very well! I’ve learned to work with its kinks but this was still fun to learn about!

Massey Steam hammer! Just a baby one, maybe a 1 CWT. Notice the pedal and how the controls work on this hammer.

Who needs a real anvil when you have an amazing and determined wife!

Just getting started with smithing. On a tight budget but my amazing wife scored 2 forklift tines and we were able to get them cut and welded together to build a makeshift anvil.
So excited

Tool of the day. The scroll jig. If you are forging scrolls by hand all the time I would recommend getting or making a scroll jig. Save on time and time is money. #blacksmithing #blacksmithingtools #ironworking #forging

Nobody lives in a vacuum. I am no exception. Today as I work on a shield boss for @moravianarmory I was thinking about that. I was using a hammer from my buddy @michaelsweitzy which work amazing! Definitely check him out. I got a sinking and a raising hammer. Both were the prototypes and work perfectly. Mine are 2lb but he can make them any size you need. Also I finally had a chance to try out wearing an arm sleeve from Robin @bauerfeindmedicalcanada I told her I would let her know how it worked but since I liked it I thought I'd let everyone know. It was weird at first. For about a minute or 2 it kinda felt like my arm was falling asleep. I thought maybe it was too small, but according to the measurements I'm at the upper end of what this sleeve can accommodate but still good. That sensation went away after I started hammering. It made a noticeable difference. Way less vibration going up my arm and I didn't fatigue as fast. And after I had finished my hammering arm felt less tired than my holding arm. I can't wait to see what this is like for a long hammering session

A Dagger. I'm happy with it, even though I've made several mistakes. I learnt quite a few things forging this.

👶🏻An old picture of me! This is of forging my SECOND EVER hammer with an old friend, before i went to learn from Alec. I made all my own tools to do it, in fact you can still find the thread on I forge Iron. I had just turned 13 I believe. Everything was very crude, but I gained a huge appreciation for people who have taken time to experiment and develop their own techniques and styles.

Finally got myself a (small) proper anvil😁 it weighs 30kg (15 lb) but it has a decent surface and a nice ring and bounce to it 😉
On vacation in my hometown #gjøvik now, and can't wait till I get home and can try this cutie😊

This was probably my favourite hammer that I saw at the Museum of Making, it runs very fast though, which I don’t prefer, buts how they were made. I believe @hammer_whisperer was involved with getting this one running.
