Working on a tin cup

 I was fortunate to get myself a beverage tin can with a sturdy enough thickness. So I figured I´d give those tin cups a go myself. I was inspired by keith from woodsrunersdiary. Check out his blog, if you haven´t already, it´s a must read for any bushcrafter and historical trekker, if you ask me!
 I removed the lid with my new whittler.
 ...done.
 ...and this is what the blade looked like after that abuse;-). I had a very flat convex bevel on it for woodcarving, but it looks like something went right with the tempering;-). Tiny damage, but still shaving sharp. Makes me proud, somewhat...:-)
Now ready for action. Have to widen the mouth a bit to fix a handle to´t...:-) and we´ll see what the forge says to the project...

  2. Me too, but there are so many projects on my mind these days, and I am a chaotic character, so it may take a while...

Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
