Small spoon knife
with hand forged blade
This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/82266
1. The knife.
2. Small diameter for small areas.
3. At the coal forge.
4. Drawing the rough shape.
5. Making a handle.
6. Here with the gauge I made also.
Some weeks ago I took a blacksmith class in blade making, it was a old dream that I in this way could make every part of the tool. managed to make four knife blades, a spoon carving knife and this gouge in the two days the class took.
Then I went on holydays in Turkey and when I came home it was time to put handles on the tools first.
Hope it can inspire others to make tools.
