A new friend Marwin came over today to learn a bit about blacksmithing and knife making. We made a nail and a hook and a chef knife out of a lawn mower blade. It is my first time forging a knife from a lawn mower blade. . My dad sent me six of them about a year ago and I thought it would be a good lesson in blacksmithing. It is kind of cool . I did not set out with any shape of type of knife in mind. The process was very organic. A shape just started to take place and I went with it. In the end it resembles a chef knife …sort of. I will post pics when it is finished. It was a learning experience for us both.
