I finally made myself a RR spike knife.  I spent a couple of weeks making tongs, so I could get a little practice in.  I'm kind of glad I did.  Anyway, this is my first project other than tongs.  I have a ton of RR spikes to play with before trying to make a nice knife with good steel.

Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

Not bad for your first.  If only mine looked that good.

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

Nice job on the knife. I hope you're interested in an iron in the hat later this year
