Amber Walters: sorry bur that was a hatchet, a tomahawk is spiked on the back and needs a
longer edge with sharper parts near each end and a little less sharp in the
middle for hacking with out to deep of a bite to prevent hang ups ... that
being said very nice job and that is one sweet setup
Lucky B: hey youngster that kings ford , is alright for light stuff but if you can
get lump charcoal
there are a many brans of lump charcoal out there home depot royal oaks
is 17 pounds bag's , Sam's has 20 pound bags for 9.95 and there is a 40
pound bag of charcoal that is out of Mexico it is mesquite I don't know
if you can get that but it was 9.95 a bag also I haven't seen it here in
Texas for a while . , , and I must say that is o0nee fine forge young man
, when you have time away from making your millions of dollars your going
o be making , make a hood for over that fire pot or whole forge that way
you will enjoy spending all them millions and wont have Lung problems
like I do . word top the wise ..
FUCK YOU YOUTUBE STOP ASKING FOR MY REAL NAME: crap music....awesome vid
capknives: I've made two hawks from railroad spikes myself I did both the other way .
The head of the spike became the head of the hawk and the othe side is a
wicked spike . I need a little more practice throwing then I'll post a vid
. nice hawk and knife by the way .
TalonBlades: Quick question: Why is the forge so far away from the anvil? I would think
that you would lose a lot of heat just from walking back and forth. I keep
my anvil and forge as close togather as possible.
RuNeSCaPeR133: did you use powertools?
squidboy46: To ALL beginners, Buy books on blacksmithing and forging. Its worth the
investment and will help you make less mistakes.
puppetmaster6483: @Jaimoore12 To use the flat railroad track, you have to have written
permission to have it else they will classify it as theft. Be careful, call
your local railway and ask for permission.
culchieman1995: a two foot lenght of I-beam
Jai Moore: Grainger industrial supply.... about $45 bucks for this blower. I also
bought the rheostat that controls the fan speed there as well
Jai Moore: @BeboAltizer Heat the handle and place the butt of the knife in a table
vice vertically. Usu a pair of vice grips or wrench to turn the top portion
of the handle 1 full turn or what ever you desire. Good luck.
Jotunn: God bless rednecks.
Willhelm McProblem: do your neighbor ever complain =D ?
margin .annihilator: were the freak do u find rail road spikes in britain
David Charles: bull crap
braselforge: well i have heared if that you triple quench highcarbon spikes in water
they hold a pretty fair edge, but i kinda agree, but the do look nice, maby
a forge weld with 1095 cutting edge would look nice, man ima have to
forgeweld one now lol
ThaYungTunechi: Does it work ?
mcd2290: i use an aircompressor on about 20 psi. i will try to find some better fuel
camino primitivo: How did you make the whole for the wood to go in the axe head? nice job =)
peregrinatus: What's the soundtrack?
SuperHaloslayer123: @themusic928 a pease of good steal works well if it is large enouf
Sarge Bourque: Whats the song?
aiman3107: Boooooo......... that suck :(
Angelo Ruggiero: good idea
OptimusJel: How did you end up with the hole for the handle to wedge into? I assume
pounding a punch into the red hot metal? Thanks!
Jai Moore: I don't know the answer to that. I'm sorry. I am only a novice at this
blacksmith stuff. I do weld and work with wood.... so it was nothing to
build the forge. I haven't had the opportunity to study as an apprentice
under anyone....so I probably make a lot of mistakes.
brandonk42: @rcmoot Wow dude, read the description and chill. Why do people feel the
need to leave comments like this.
fungunner: That anvil looks mounted pretty high. I normally see em where they only
come up the the smith's knuckles.
Robert Odom: that would be nine pound hammer by ralph stanley
Joseph Rice: kingsford. wtf. get some natural lump charcoal, or some real coal. The only
thing kingsford is good for is cooking your steaks. your wasting money buy
using kingsford will burn up too fast. Also your loosing a lot of heat
having your anvil so far away from your forge. I suggesting moving your
anvil a least 3 feet or less from the forge. You are doing good work and
the pieces look great, but its painful to watch your working so hard at
what your doing..
Chris Gregory: nice knife, but does the metal from the spikes hold an edge well and is a
teagm003: @themusic928 I heard someone at a BABA convention did what he called 'Gypsy
blacksmithing' by cutting down a tree and used the wood to make charcoal,
then dug a pit and used that as a charcoal forge, and used the stump as an
anvil... Apparently he finished up with some nice little knives, although
quite how he didn't burn his stump away over the weekend I'm not sure, lol.
maybe you could try that? A good piece of hardwood tapered at one end with
some flat scrap metal on the top...?
Skylar Searcy: dude that anvil is way tooo far away from the forge.
Kylef7735: @DCMWDC Punches
THESCENEQM: whats up with the music
pidner: Nice job,the knife is top notch.If you use even regular coal youll be able
to get the spike hotter and be able to shape it longer without running back
to the forge to reheat,but Im sure a guy that does that gooder work knows
that.I learned you can use Kingsford in a pinch.Nice set up by the way.
dminor214: any nearest rail road track by you go park your car and walk along the
gravel edges. when the guys fix the tracks they usually toss the old spikes
that they pull off to the sides youll be able to find lots there.
12gravediggers: lol i kept looking around for cops untill a found out it was coming from
BeboAltizer: hey i have zero experience in making knives, but i would love to make a
railroad spike knife.....do you have any tips? or at least, how did you
twist the handle of your knife like that? that was awesome!!!
Zeb Kaye: would you sell the knife
AheetHeta666: damn taht freaking redneck music
kevo1264: Man thats awesome, good way to use some easy resources, props.
jim331250: that is a great idea... specially if you dont know how to forge weld
yet.... lol i am trying to figure out the forge weld technique but i cant
get the just of it... i do belive i am going to make one of those thanx for
blackarrow2220: were did u get the spikes at
fireball1821: where did you get your blower
344airsoft: i like the music
Arin Weedon: Nice anvil, where did you get?
niksechtniks: i take the head for the blade
gdiggle123: i bet WoW nerds have a nerdgasm when they see ur set up XD
Elijah B: How did you make a hole in the middle of the railroad spike for the handle?
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
