Fire Poker

Here is my first Fire Poker. Made out of some rod and sealed with beeswax.

First Forged Blade

The result of four hours of forging and two hours of grinding/polishing.
I enjoyed every minute of it.
The holes need to be touched up, I don't have strong enough drill bits yet.

Some WIP Pictures

Done Forging

Grinding bevels
I was studying the blade when I accedently touched the tip to the belt sander and sent the blade flying towards the floor with not even a scratch! A bit surprising because the blade is very soft right 

Polishing before heat treat
The tip looks a little bent but its just the bevel that still needs fixed
