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.
 ...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...


  1. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

  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!
