Blacksmithing in Forest gate 12-05-14

I have been experimenting with the bus spring material. I wanted to forge large beards. This time I started by punching the eye with a cold chisel and then bending by 90 degees before drawing out the beard. 

Did not go according to plan – note the large crack. Maybe I should draw in down before bending as well as opening out the eye.

Still working on some of Magnus’s bits – this is a Damascus steel knife.
