this is the first thing I have forged other than a striker or that one hammer I made.

A striker/knife, to say I am proud of what I produced for my first effort is an understatement.

This is also my entry into the facebook weekly blacksmith challenge.

Well done, a nicely finished knife made on a home forge. Sparks very well with the S. Australian flint.

Keep at it. Your endeavours may open doors in the re enactment, medieval, bushcraft shows like the one coming at Orange N.S.W I have mentioned.
