    That is impressive, and I could not do it myself; but, I did buy an old hatchet at a yard sale for a dollar. That is a close as I will get to doing anything constructive.

    think we need a thread just for blacksmithing
    It happened before, it can happen again.
    It happened there, it can happen here.
    It happened to that person, it can happen to you.

    basic type blacksmithing a striking anvil would be cheapest
    if you going to have curves etc etc then a anvil with a slint hook like the type post be good
