Finished samples by Josh Greenwood
All forged on the EC-JYH built by Jock Dempsey
To me, the most intresting samples are the two on the lower left. They are definitely NOT the most beautiful. However, they were the samples forged in my shop using makeshift tools on an unproven machine with some unusual characteristics. The one fullering tool available was one I'd made 14 years ago. It was one of those, "well, it might be handy later" type things. . . The other samples were forged at the ABANA conference in Asheville using Josh's own tools. Spliting and scrolling had to wait until after we got home due to the loss of our borrowed forge.
This foray into demonstating sophisticated techniques has renewed Josh's intrest in blacksmithing and he says he would like to do some demonstrations and workshops. You can contact Josh through Jock Dempsey guru at!.
