After hearing to our discussion with artisan blacksmith Ray Robinson in Tool Talk Podcast #3, a number of listeners asked for pictures of the corkscrew and fork I have which Ray made. I’m sorry I didn’t post them earlier, but better late than never, right?
The photo above is the corkscrew. Remember, this was made with a three pound hammer. Read on past the jump for more pictures.
In this detail shot, you can see Ray’s “double-R” touchmark on the corkscrew.
Here’s one of the colonial-style forks Ray mentioned in the podcast. As crazy as it sounds, these aren’t “super special” works according to Ray. They’re intended for use.
Here’s a detail shot of the tines.
And a final detail shot of the tiny little scroll on the back. (A three pound hammer. Really.)
If there’s enough interest, we might be able to schedule Ray in on Tool Talk again down the calendar a bit.
