|When I started, I had in mind to make a cook's cleaver. Soon after I began forging I realised that the 'handle' was too long and it would be an awkward kitchen tool at best. I toyed briefly with the idea of trying to pull the bottom corner down enough to make it a 'bearded' cleaver, but the steel spoke and said that it was going to be a hatchet thankyou very much, and if I tried to turn it into anything else it was just going to be ugly. Sometimes Brute Force & Ignorance don't win, sometimes you have to listen.
