Jewels and copper forging

Jewels and copper forging

This ring is cold forged from a copper bar, engraved with a particular roundish chisel, then bent over the anvil horn. The final process is heating the ring on a plate, until reaching a red oxidation colour.

Knifemaking and iron forging

Knifemaking and iron forging

All parts of the knife are handcrafted: the blade is forged  from a piece of an old wagon wheel, the steel is differential heat treated and the final result is etched in chloridric acid  for revealing the beautiful silica pattern in the steel; the handle is carved to shape from a tree branch.
