Some recent things off the anvil. The pigtail steak turners are all right handed and forged from high carbon railroad spikes. They are roughly 16" in length.
The grill cleaner is forged from mild steel (3/8" square stock x 20" with about a size 3" cup). To use it, an onion is placed on the spike in the cup, and using the handle to hold the cup, the onion is rubbed over the BBQ grate. This is much safer than using brass bristles.
Getting back into the forging a bit and also learning about the new induction forge. Key point: don't have the diameter of the coil too large or it will take forever (if ever) for the eddy currents to find the heat. In turn, this means that it will require considerably more work to draw out the metal.
Starting with simple steak turners based on some railroad spikes.
