Hello folks I had a chance to use a head cam and give you guys a little show of what it is like to forge with me. I am making a few spear heads to send to Terry R in north AL. We are doing a bit of bartering of goods. The way they did in the old days. I make you something and you give me something you made. I wished there was more of this. Walmart would be needed less.
The spears I believe will be for display. He had found some online but we were in fear they are made in China. He wanted American made and hand forged. I had never done a spear point but have done knives. So I have a picture of my first.
On the bottom is the steel blank used in the forging of the spearhead on top. I was trying to make it look late 1800’s and made on the plains.
This is the online version. To me it looks as if it is stamped out of a press.
I would like to show you some of Terry’s work.
These are very nice, are they not?
Now I am sorry for the quality of the video. This was an experiment with a head-cam. I will not use it in further videos in this fashion.
Thanks folk for giving me a few minutes of your time. And a great big thank you to Terry!
