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.

    That’s *very* cool.

    Are you guys planning a how-to, by any chance?

  2. TimUnderwood says:

    I’m not sure if those exact items are shown, bu you might try here for blacksmithing how-to projects.

    James: We’ve talked to Ray about some TM blacksmithing content, but he’s a little busy right now. I’d guess we’ll see more of him in writing in the future, though. As I mentioned in the original post, if there’s significant interest we could most certainly bring him back as a guest again.

    That’s cool. Blacksmiths appear to be in short supply these days, so I’m not surprised Ray is busy.

    That Anvilfire site looks cool, though. It looks like I have a lot of reading to do.
