steel.  If he has the stuff to forge then material is what he needs.  If still learning classes are well worth it

thank you

Needed a better top tool to make the feathers so I cut some tie rod (4140ish)and made one.  It works well but needs sharpened often so Iím remaking it from O1

The h13 punch and drift are awesome!

Looks like your staying busy making cool stuff. I use to have a hatchet that a buddy made me similar to what you have there, it was pretty sweet.

after I made it I was thinking itís very hatchet like and with a heat treat it would probably be a great little hatchet.  Would need thinned down some.  After I finish the O1 tool Iíll repurpose it for a trapping ax

Finished up the slitter in O1 and another set of tongs and did a smaller drift for my struck tools.   Picked up a bunch of square stock today and I need to get some steak flippers done. May do some dragon head flippers

Does anyone know of a place in eastern Washington that sells forging coke? I sold my propane forge a couple years ago and wanna start again. Got a brake drum, rebar, and a welder so I think thatíll be a fun build. Gonna use the rebar to make my Tongs too.

Or should I buy coke online?
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

How much are your coat hooks?
