Tomorrow is my last forge day of the season with New England Blacksmiths. I hope to finish my Machete sword thingy I'm making and start on some armor. My goal is to make pauldrons, greaves, shin guards, and bracers. I'll post images of my work. The machete will need to be sent somewhere to be heat treated though.

I made a legitimate knife at the forge the other day. It's actually quite awesome. Its a classic railroad spike knife. I still need to polish it up some more and finish the sharpening job... I like the look of the pockmarks from rust... It looks worn. The knife is too soft to hold a decent edge, but it looks cool.
