Black Coffee: check
Hey this hexagonal tumbler fits beside my bench anvil...
Hmm, lets get some more symmetry; reorganise pliers from big to small...

Take a photo... post on blog...
OK, enough procrastination already!!

Still with charcoal hands.
Folks say things are going "pear-shaped" (meaning wrong, -but I love pear shapes...) but I say things are going "kite-shaped"- sometimes when you forge, the sides get skewed, or kite shaped, this is undesirable, but not to worry, you just need to keep an eye on this and correct in the early stages.

This comb has a forged dip on both sides- I did this after the tines were cut, so it was tricky to control the displacement of the metal without contorting the straight tines.
A different methodology would be wiser. ( forge first, then cut?)
But I'm feeling my way.
Possibly this form and texture could have been achieved more easily by casting techniques, but this thing is all made with saws and hammers folks.
Perhaps I'll make a silver version if anyone wants one.
I like this one, it feels really good in the hand.
It's asking you to take it on a long journey.
