Had a great day today!

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.
