It doesn't look like much, but It's been a bit of a wild ride around here... In the last few months I've managed to add 900 square feet of shop space (that I've been dreaming of for 12 years) and rearrange a pile of rediculously heavy equipment and tooling in to the new space while trying to finally get to a place where I don't have to move a machine just to use another machine. At the same time, my dream hammer turned up out of the blue, so I ended up tackling the installation of my new to me 200 pound Chambersburg, one piece, self contained hammer along with everything else. Its been an unreasonable amount of work that has taken all of my attention from forging, but I love the results, and finally feel like I'm getting things wrestled in to place, and getting back to a point where I can see what the new shop will let me do!

Центр традиционной народной культуры Среднего Урала ⠀ Центр традиционной народной культуры Среднего Урала был создан в 2011 году на базе двух организаций: Свердловского областного дома фольклора и Уральского центра народных промыслов и ремёсел. Задачей Центра является сохранение и популяризация традиционной культуры народов Урала – как материальной (художественных народных промыслов, ремёсел, сувениров), так и нематериальной (фольклора, обычаев и обрядов, народных праздников, местных диалектов). ⠀ Для сохранения традиционной культуры Урала Центр организует фольклорно-этнографические экспедиции по Уралу (сбор песен, пословиц, обычаев, праздников и обрядов, знакомство с ремёслами и традициями), проводит научно-практические конференции, организует фольклорные концерты, выпускает научно-популярный альманах «Колесо», издаёт тематические сборники. ⠀ А поскольку и праздники, и ремёсла лучше всего сохраняются не в музейных запасниках — в живом общении, Центр традиционной народной культуры Среднего Урала активно проводит этнографические выставки и ярмарки (разного масштаба: от городских до международных), фольклорные фестивали. Например, ежегодный фестиваль традиционной мужской культуры «Дмитриев день», приуроченный ко дню памяти Дмитрия Солунского проводится в Екатеринбурге больше 15 лет и уже приобрёл статус Всероссийского. Есть и новинки: в 2012 году к списку фестивалей добавился Областной детский фестиваль традиционных игр народов Среднего Урала (место проведения – Красноуфимск). Серьёзное внимание уделяется казачьему фольклору. ⠀ Популяризации народных промыслов способствуют выставки и мастер-классы мастеров декоративно-прикладного и народного искусства, занятия для детей и взрослых. Мастер классы проводятся как в помещении Центра, так и на выезде. Хотите увидеть настоящие уральские сувениры? А ещё лучше – сделать их своими руками? Вам сюда! В Центре регулярно работают детские и взрослые художественные мастерские по керамике, камнерезному искусству, художественному текстилю, народной кукле, урало-сибирской росписи и не только! ⠀

Finally got myself a proper anvil. 116 lbs. Was badly pitted, but it was nothing that a half dozen cheap flap discs couldn't solve. Before and after photos. #blacksmithing #bladesmithing #anvil

Tried so hard to keep this line 0.25mm from the gold for background removal! It got rough in several areas but it’s so much better than I could have done 2 weeks ago! Striving for such levels of manual precision is so foreign to me, as a hammer and fire kind of guy, but it is such a thrill to try! 🎉🔥 Reposted from @alecsteele #blacksmithartist forgedknife #bladesmithing #blacksmithplover #blacksmiths #forging #blacksmithdesigner #blacksmith #blacksmithlife #bladesmith #blacksmithandco #forges #blacksmithart #blacksmithsundays #forgedstrong #forgestar #forgeworld #blacksmithtools #forgedinfire #blacksmithing #blacksmithshop #forge #blacksmithartstudio #forgeteverything #blades

Nails, nails and more nails, not so long ago you ordered the nails you needed from the village smith. They were expensive too, even then! In fact old barns and dwellings were burnt down just to retrieve the nails, spikes and door furniture... #southernhighlands #artisan #nsw #wildesmeadow #blacksmith #blacksmithing #handmade #australianmade #sustainableliving #selfsufficiency #backtobasics #offthegrid @thefoldsouthernhighlands @gregberrell @plankandtrestle @highlandharvestfeasts @1910artisan @wildfestaus @the1910ironworks @steampunk @steampin @ansons_knives_and_stuff

At Eveleigh, machine & workers combined to keep the heart of the State's transport system going. 🚂💨 Steam provided the pulse that kept the workshops going and steam power was venerated by workers. Eveleigh was powered by 36 class steam boilers like those pictured, right up until its closure in 1988! #SydneyHistory

So I’ve done this now on the last 3 or knives I’ve made, immediately after quench, maybe even a little before the quench is 100% finished, I take the blade and do this in the vise (see second pic) I sandwich it between two other bars of steel and crank that bitch down tight, and I leave it to cool the rest of the way. This knife went into the heat curvy as fuck, I did this just to see how it would do, checked it before I vised it up and still curvy, this is after the vise treatment. @bigkittyftw said I was doing an interrupted quench, idk cause this is some bullshit I made up in my garage, but apparently it’s been done before, I think I’m going to build a rig to do this, that way I’m not seconds away from burning myself during this process, but anyway if you like straight knives, imo this is pretty slick. #tomahawk #axe #anvil #blacksmith #blacksmithing #forge #forging #knives #knife #knifenut #knivesofig #knifesale #ThePewPewLife #igguns #igmilitia #instaguns #gunsofinstagram #gunsdaily #gunspictures #guns #gun #gunporn #gunlife #gunchannels #firearms #weapon #pistol #weapons

Dressing the face of the Trenton Anvil I recently bought. It’s important to respect these old anvils as antiques, but if your going to use it it’s good to dress the face, smooth chipped edges etc. I like to avoid welding edges if possible . This one has one edge that’s sharpe and the other side is chamfered. It’s nice to have all those different edge transitions.

Well this came out well, I’m planning on leaving the oxides so the edge being that grey martensite looking shit kinda works, should also mean this things edge is harder then the spine, pretty cool imo. #tomahawk #axe #anvil #blacksmith #blacksmithing #forge #forging #knives #knife #knifenut #knivesofig #knifesale #ThePewPewLife #igguns #igmilitia #instaguns #gunsofinstagram #gunsdaily #gunspictures #guns #gun #gunporn #gunlife #gunchannels #firearms #weapon #pistol #weapons

One last #photo on how #dangerous #blacksmithing can be. You have to stay completely aware of what u are doing and at the same time anticipate your next few moves. #preperation is key in this #business if your interested in this line of work or have any questions feel free to comment or message me. Ppl who want to order u know what to do. The website is your friend. Very easy to use and customize items. Hope this helped at least one person. #blacksmithingsucks #lovemetal #burnsonpalmshurts #gotcoal?

Fine OSHA! YOU WIN! OSHA and my wife are happy to see that I'm wearing eye, ear, breathing, and a thick apron for my torso. Is this enough safety equipment??

Started work on the bolster tonight. I decided to go with a two piece design instead of the solid forged idea I had originally. Since I’m doing all this with mostly hand tools, I’m really trying not to overwhelm myself. This is my first knife build, I’m not trying to go crazy. #knifemaker #handmade #madeinamerica #builtnotbought #copper #steel #metal #blades #blacksmithing #forged #forgedsteel #handfiles #arcangelbladesmiths

Got a good soupy coating of ITC100HT spanking in to the ceramic wool in the ebay forge. Will let it sit for a couple of days to dry, then light it up to cure it with a gradual increase temp fire. #amateurblacksmith #notabladesmith #noiwontmakeyouasword #myfatherisablacksmith #imablacksmithsson #blacksmith #blacksmithing #forge #anvil #steel #iron #devilforge #propane #hankhill

My new favorite tool called a pickeroon. Forged this one after getting to use an antique one. It’s almost too pretty to use! #blacksmithing #forging #woodworking #logging #tools #axe

For sale, an exceptional early forged August Refflinghaus south German pattern anvil. Weighing 242 lbs, this anvil has crisp edges, a flat face and excellent rebound. It has the transitions of a south German pattern but a wide 5 5/8” face, indicative of older south German anvils, which aren’t as narrow as the more contemporary ones. Forgewelded out of at least 6 pieces it still has cool hammer marks on the feet and the A. Refflinghaus maker mark. For price/info please send a message. I can ship economically. Have a great Thursday night 👍........................... #anvil #anvils #blacksmith #blacksmithing #forge #metalwork #tools #handtools #vintagetools #antiques #peterwright #swage #swageblock #mandrel

Just got the tanks refilled! $45 to fill/ top off (22 gallons worth) of propane! A 5, 7, and 15 gallon tank! The 15 gain is a blessing from @ironmanvanguard and have yet to have the tank seize up yet from boyels law freezing :)
