P-160: Metalworking Forge Update 5

by on Jun.21, 2015, under Inventions, Miscellany

I have uploaded some pictures of my second forging session. My knife is already starting to look vaguely knife-shaped, with the tip coming together nicely.

I now need to work on the handle, refine the tip, and flatten the blade in preparation for taking an edge.

I think the tip of the blade was the hardest part because I had to work the steel at a very awkward angle, and it kept slipping under the force of the hammer.
