Looks ike a tiring hobby. Something that I always enjoyed to see, to see the tool come out of an odd shaped peice.

One of my week end jobs. You don't think about how it feels, it just has to be done.

I have been looking for one of those dandelion cutters like this.dandy.jpg

 

 

The only ones I can find now look like something OSHA invented. Totally useless!

I marvel at the talents Blacksmiths have. MY uncle used to dabble in this back in the 40s and 50s. He had the whole shop. As a little guy I would pump the bellows on the forge to get the fire hot. I always liked to go there and watch him make things. He once made me a knife and somehow through the years it was passed between my brothers and me and some how we misplaced it. Thanks for showing us your talents. Looks hard and hot.  Thanks.                                      Roger
