Making a Draw Knife from an Old Rusty Metal File

I’m making a drawknife from an old file that I found on the scrap yard. After Annealing the file I forged it into the desired shape and bent the thangs to receive the handles that I’ve turned from beech firewood. After the steel has cooled down slowly ive burned the handles to get a perfect fit. For the hardening process, I heated the steel to a non-magnetic state and quenched the edge in pre-warmed vegetable oil. After the hardening was done I tempered the edge to a dark straw color. Afterwards the handles were glued on with two-part epoxy and additional copper ferrules. The handles were coated with boiled linseed oil.

Making a Useful Tool from Broken Car Spring

Car springs are made from steel that would be quite suitable for making tools, they are also cheap or you can get them for free from your local car mechanic.

As I’m very new to blacksmithing this is the perfect price to pay for a usable “practice” material. This time I want to make a knife that is most often used for woodcarving, Better known as a hook knife This tool is very handy when carving wooden dishes, spoons. Thank you very much for watching!

Forging Basic Blacksmiths Tongs | Beginner Blacksmithing Project

This is my First blacksmithing project so if I can do it you can make them too! In total, I used about 300mm of 25mm x 6 mm mild steel flat bar for the forged tongs and about 800mm of the same material for the “stupid” simple ones. Which can be reused for forging new tongs.
