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

For a very stylish dinner!
Have you actually used them for eating? Or just as decoration? I like them very much

There is many blacksmiths all over the world, so you can of course find some local artisan and ask if can he make similar set for you.

How tha hell did you twist them like that?

Astalo Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
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. :)

Yleisempi nimitys on ihan vaan muinaismarkkinat tai viikinkimarkkinat etc.
Suurin on varmaankin Saltvikin viikinkimarkkinat Ahvenanmaalla ja pienempiä löytyy ympäri suomea. Itse en ole käynyt vielä muissa kuin Pukkisaaren muinaismarkkinoilla, koska pääkaupunkiseudulle pääsee niin kätevästi junalla täältä itä-rajalta.

Is this what's called a "double twist" design? Crank the bar one way and then the other? And I'm guessing you start with a square bar as opposed to a round one to get that pattern? Sorry if I'm being a bit gabby, but I love the look of this kind of stuff and an just curious as to the techniques.

is the twist pattern 3/4 turn then 3/4 reverse twist over and over? What was your starting material thickness? I need to forge a set to go with the frying pan im working on.
Reply
:iconastalo:
Astalo Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
I don't remember the twist count, but probably something like that. I also made chiseled line for two sides before twisting.
Knife is forged from leftover piece from car's leaf spring and the other parts are forged from 12 mm square rods. But you have "upset" the other end more thicker, because 12 mm is not enough for that spoon head.
