Well have not posted any projects in a bit but have a few things in the works. Ive been practicing my forging as much as I can (couple hours at a time here and there) and these are the latest candidates that I hope I will finish. First time working with some of these metals also.
The two larger blade things are from 1/4" W2 which I think I will really like forging as its very easy to work with compared to some other stuff. Have not fully decided on the profile for the blades yet but hopefully come up with something cool.
The smaller forged one is 1084 which is similar in shape to a blade I made before, just trying to do a better job this time around.
The little guy is forged from 1/4" 8670M and is almost ready for HT. Finish the tang profiling and then hopefully this guy will make a nice little puukko style blade.
I am still trying to get better at getting more of the blade finished with my forging but for now I am just happy getting a relatively smooth surface, straight blade, and good tapers where necessary. Thanks for looking and Ill update the thread as I make progress with these guys.
