Forged eating set by Astalo Forged eating set by Astalo
It was my first time in one Finnish "iron age fair", so i wanted to make quite flashy dining gear for my own use in that place. Probably quite bling pieces compared to simple wooden spoons, what you normally see on viking tables. :D

That twist pattern is too difficult to handle with forge, so i take usually oxy acetylene torch and twist small sections at one by one.

Thanks again for the faves. :thumbsup:

No but like, I've tried twisting in different directions, but it doesn't look like that

I heat about 15-20 mm section at a time and put steel rod to water bucket after each twist. Then earlier twist don't open in the heat when you are making next one and the final pattern will look nice and tight. That deep curve between two opposite twists is also quite nice bonus.. :)

Am I right that to get the pattern you are twisting the steel back and forth?


I've considered making my own cutlery before but always end up getting an order just when I decide I'm in the mood to do it.


Congratulations on the daily deviation, by the way.

Yeah. I twisted the handles with oxy acetylene torch, because it's the most easy way to heat only small sections at one by one..

Thanks, but there was not any forge welding methods used in this set. I made the knife from one solid piece of spring steel. (from old cars's leaf spring) And the fork & spoon are forged from standard 12x12 mm square rods. All three are solid pieces of metal without any seams/joints etc. :)
