Just uploaded a video of me using my hammer that I restored to forge a railroad spike knife. Super happy with how the hammer performed, and will definitely be working on bettering my forging skills. The link is in the bio.
🔥GAW UPDATE🔥 well good news and bad news, good news for everyone in the GAW 🔥 there's is now 2 chances to win!!!🔥bad news for the blade😞 somewhere in the forging process I picked up a crack in the blade and didn't see it until after quenching.however I was able to reprofile and get rid of the crack and save the blade!! Just a much smaller version of what I promised. So I've decided to go ahead and finish this blade and have already got a new San Mai billet coming for a 2nd blade!!! I'm not going to give up now haha. Because I've had such a huge turn out What I'll do is have two drawings .2nd drawing gets the smaller modified version and 1st drawing gets the new full size blade! This is all an awesome experience for me and very much appreciated everyone following along as I learn this craft!!I'll post more updates on progress soon. .(see original post for gaw details) . .
