Really nice pics, did someone take them for you or are they a tripod and timer set up?

Hello Warren, sorry for my lack of reply, I have been having a tough couple of weeks. I got myself an old canon 20d and a 50mm lens, I have it set up on a tripod with a timer.....It makes for some nice surprise shots....Since I have been using the dslr I can't bring myself to use anything else
Lots going on in the workshop, will get some pics up soon.

Im sure Nikon are fab, I went canon as I picked one up at a bargain price and I can borrow my brothers expensive lenses if required. Between the kit lens the 50mm plastic fantastic and a rather nice 60mm macro seems to have it covered for workshop and end product photographs.
I had to have a break from grinding today so I set about forging damascus carving forks and a cheeky little, well quite chunky tasting spoon from stainless....
Soon to be forks, the process for these is to forge to shape, then grind the last of the profiling in as these are damascus and will want to be hand finished and etched....
Now split for the tines, next step will be to separate the them and forge them out... then I will draw the rest from the rest of the lump...
I have been wanting to try a forged tasting spoon for a while, so here is one, my way, forged from 20mm stainless steel.
She is pretty an authoritative spoon I would say, suitable for a sharp clock to the head from senior chef if the flavour does not meet his exacting standards...
And finally what is in grind process.....lots
This is the slice off the end of the loaf, the pattern will stretch out from here as its forged into blades but just for a taste....
And some others...

I hate this forum sometimes!!!! I could end up with a kitchen full of handmade everything if I keep seeing stuff like this

"She is pretty an authoritative spoon I would say, suitable for a sharp clock to the head from senior chef if the flavour does not meet his exacting standards..." Almost wet my pants Will. Gonna try this at home... fist with a rubber spatula or sponge
Spoon looks like a WINNER. Maybe for a Fall Collection?

Beautiful spoon. I love how it's not smoothed out. Reminds of something our ancestors might have used back in the day.
