The first image shows another Wolf's Tooth experiment in the making - both sides have teeth in the high-carbon steel which have been filled with wrought iron. I need to weld the core next time.
The second image shows the model for the guard with a motif of celtic dogs from Aidan Meehan. This will be cast in bronze.
Here is an experiment with forging the teeth; refining forged teeth with the bandsaw, and different cuts on the bandsaw.
Ps: Only the first two teeth remain just forged; the rest I destroyed with the bandsaw.
Forge Diaries: Episode 1
and Episode 3
all lightly touched on the Wolf's Tooth Pattern. Here is my latest experiment in the form of a small dagger:
I still need a few more experiments before I can cover the techniques in a video update. So, bear with me.
Feel free to ask questions below.
This episode shows techniques for refining wrought iron to give it finer grain. It also shows how to carburize wrought iron and then turn it into shear steel. Both of these techniques are combined to forge a sax knife. Enjoy!
