I decided to bring a large bar of W2 to Randy's hammer in to squish and make stuff from. I was chatting it up with Al, ChefLarge, and was playing with his cleavers...I got a wild hair up my ass...I decided i was going to forge a cleaver!!! Now...to give a heads up, forging a cleaver is a metric butt ton of work! I think seriously, there was 3-4 hours of forging involved.
W2 bar at 2.125" diameter, 11" long.
Skipping a lot of squishing
Now for the hand forging...
