With the completion of the purpleheart prototype, I decided to build a pair using a piece of burmese blackwood that I bought a couple of years ago. The blog to follow along with the build is here. The vital specs:
- 55 degree bed on one, 47 degrees on the other (this was not intentional, ugh)
- 1 1/2” wide O1 iron, 5/32” thick
- 6” long
- About 2 1/2 lbs. each
These were fun and quick to build after doing the prototype. They would have been quicker with less hassle had I not done peened through rivets. Oh well, live and learn. The last pictures show the whole family. As for the plan, I only need one, so the other will be offered up after the irons get heat treated. Thanks for looking!
