My tool making progress

Postby Wayne H » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:28 am

I have started creating tools for myself, with some large amounts of guidance over WhatsApp by Tiaan Burger (hugely appreciated)


My hammer progress (Made from unhardened 5160)
300

And in my hand:
301

And my progress on the tagane thus far (all made from 01 tool steel)

Kebori (its not right yet, I have to fix up my angles and lines):
The Side:
302
The Top:
303
The Bottom:
304
The Front:
305

And then the kata-kiri (its 4mm wide):
The Side:
306
The Top:
307
The Bottom:
308

Both tagane have a angle of 60deg between the two faces.

Hi Wayne,
making ones own tools is a pretty good exercise.
Maybe its due the photo but it seems the hammers face is not right-angled to its main axis.
If so it could cause some trouble when in use.
