    Default Finally getting going again!

    I have reworked some stuff in the garage, and am just waiting for a few last parts for my air hammer.

    Meantime, I got my first bar of W2 and forged the first razor.

    That's a Grizzly. Not awesome but it works. I think that's the 36 grit zirconia belt. Maybe 60 grit.

    That and a hand file and some 400 grit wet/dry is all I've used on this one so far. Once it's shaped I'll try the clay and fire yaki-ire (to make the hamon).

    I had the chance to bring my gear on a weekend getaway with some friends and let them each make some beer openers etc. Awesome weekend.
