This was forged from a ball peen hammer and etched in ferric chloride.
I think the admin needs to review my posts?
Very cool. What steel is it made of?
love it-forging a ball pein is high on my "next" list
dancom - I am ashamed to say that I don't know exactly what type of steel it is made of since I forged it from an old ball peen hammer. Needless to say though it's quite hard, after it was quenched we tested it in a hardness tester and it came out at 63Rc prior to tempering.
Ah, sorry man. My first read was more like forged with a ball peen, instead of from a ball peen. Cooler yet!
Looks like my twin brothers also made from a hammer
FORGE - Your brother has some nice work there. Great job on the spikes, I struggled with mine.
Good looking hawk. Nice work.
