Hewing Hatchet with Socketed Eye - 321

590.00

Students will be led through the forging of a hewing hatchet with an elongated socket for an eye, based on a Norse axe from the 17th century. Students will strike for each other to produce parts for each smith’s axe. These parts will be fitted and forge welded together to form the socket which is then attached to the blade with tool steel welded to one face. Cutting edges will be hardened and tempered. The rest of the body will remain soft enough for simple embellishment with punches which will be demonstrated. PREREQUISITE: Blacksmithing I and II or equivalent experience. Tom has been creating original metalwork in his Pepin, WI workshop for over 25 years. Tom’s hand forged ironwork is functional in traditional Gothic, Renaissance, Scandinavian, and Early American styles.
