Damascus spurs

These spurs have a 3/4" band, 1 1/2" shank, and a 6 point clover rowel. The steel is made from 1018 mild steel and pure nickel. They are hand forged in my shop.

These were delivered this afternoon to the worlds greatest chiropractor. Thanks Doc!

A copied bit

An old timer brought me a bit to copy. The one he brought had been hammered out on a battle ship in 1942. I think I got close.
I'll put silver on it after he approves it.

A couple of young angus/coriente bulls I bought to put on heifers next spring.

Some ladies coming to see what I'm doing.

Knives and gear

I finished these today. 1084/15n20 raindrop damascus. Hammered out in my shop.
This one is off to an engraver, 4.5" cutting edge, 1.25" wide.

3" cutting edge, cow bone handle.

My new quirt that I traded Billy Albin out of. His raw hide work is amazing.

Jessica's new trailer.

A new hackmore that Tommy Rogers tied up for me. The gray mare is happy with it.

A little cow work

We preg checked a few heifers today, worked a few out of sync calves, branded a couple of new bulls, then moved everything to new pastures. We had some good help from the neighbors.  One young lady volunteered to be the photographer and did a great job. I hope their morning was enjoyable.

Damascus spurs

I finished these over the week end. 1018/nickel damascus steel, 2 1/4" shank and an 1 1/8 heel band. A 2", 10 point rowel.
The color was achieved with heat. 600 degrees for about 30 minutes gives them the blueish look.

Clay Koenig and I teamed up on the top one. I intended to put a price on this one, but it sold about an hour after it was finished thanks to Clay's facebook page. The buckle base is 430/304 stainless steel damascus.
