Adventures in Blacksmithing

Well, I went and done it. I've jumped in head over feet into Blacksmithing. I got interested in it first for my leatherwork....hence why I'm posting about it on my Blog!  Anyway, I was already forging little stuff with my coffee can forge, like d rings and what not. Well now I have Diamondback Ironworks 2 burner propane forge, a small 55 lb no name old as hell anvil and a 135 lb beast of an anvil....and a bunch of hammers and what not. Anyway, I kept telling myself I didn't want to make knives, as there are a ton of very good knife makers already out there and there is no way I want to try and be a great knife maker as well as a leatherworker.......wellllll, I have went and started to try my hand at it. And be able to offer a complete package made from me.

I have also really gotten into make useful hooks and what not, the wife even had me make her some new curtain tie backs...

Here a some random crappy pictures of stuff I have forged so far.

Anyway.....just wanted to give you all an update on what I have been doing with my time.
