I could tell you,
but then I'd have to kill you.
No,just joking.
You have to see a blacksmith in action using a TRIP HAMMER to work red hot steel...
then you'd know. there must be a You Tube Video of a trip hammer being used...or there should be.

Haha, nah, you wouldn't kill me. :D
But what's a trip hammer? I guess I'll have to go look for that, because that's some amazing work.

Oh, I see now, it looks like an air hammer.

Some are mechanical, and the newer ones run on air, true...

Yeah, I personally don't like the use of air hammers, or these trip hammers, for forging swords. The way I see it, if I'm going to use heavy machinery or large tools, then I'll go with stock removal, because using technology like that in forging just seems to take so much away from it. Forging is much older and has a lot more tradition in it. I'd rather not ruin it with too much technology.

No no,don't think that way,
Even the best Japanese sword makers use trip hammers.
You can control the compression of the molecules much better with that machine.
You should see it in action before you judge it so harshly.
TRUST me,I'm a purist more than most. The TRip hammer is your friend...

You know,

I think your paintings are wonderful and to envision making metalwork for a house to compliment your work would be a treat...

One of my all time favorite architects was one of your countrymen,Luis Barragan (1902-1988). There are several architects in my area who try to emulate his style ,and I've tried to capture their attention because I think I can understand his visual vernacular and I'd love to design and build minimalist elements for a residence. So far I haven't had the chance,but I think it's only a matter of time...LOL, I hope...

I take that as a compliment Allie,
Thank you for your kind words.
The space is enviable in many ways,but probably would be put to better use as a Bed & Breakfast or a de facto hotel...

Beautiful stuff, man! I don't know who I'm channeling this morning, but when I saw this one, my *second* thought was "glad I don't have to dust THAT house!"

Oh gawd... I'm becoming my mother...

Btw, I have started reading Lost Science of the Stone Age. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, the concepts and analysis of the same are mesmerizing. I may have to read it a second time to fully grasp it all.
