    Oh.... Thanks for giving me a heads up, but all I see is your bk11, a kabar kurki, and a tribal piece? Was there more I'm not seeing, where's the 4? :)

    I just happened to see it. Easy to pick out with the engraving on the blade.

    Picture a man going on a journey filled with broken Snark bits of flotsam and jetsam, you've just entered, the shylight zone. :eek:

    weekend hammer-in went well.
    mother nature cooperated - the actual temp stayed below 90, so the RF stayed below 100 -- outside the shop!

    2 propane forges going inside, 1 coal forge going outside, 4 anvils with minimal waiting.
    14 people swinging hammers at hot metal over the course of 2 days - ranging from 9 to 66 years old.

    mostly I was helping - I did end up making a couple of pieces on Friday while demo-ing a couple of different techniques.
    small piece was an attempt to drift a cap lifter out of a piece of #3 rebar -- it split, so I added a twist, an eye, and a mouth.
    still a cap lifter, just a really ugly one.

    [​IMG]

    second piece was sort of a "try stick" made out of #4 rebar - showing a guy how to make a fork -- I went big because it was easier to show the different steps.
    then i showed him how to dish spoon on a chunk of wood.
    then I did some more twisting practice
    then I punched and drifted out a round cap lifter in the middle -- it was used several times over the course of the weekend.

    Sunday I tried a different style of caplifter -- that could also do double duty as a drunk deterrent when held "wrong".....
