Lesson 6: How to Make a Railroad Spike Knife | DIY Knife Making: Removing Peen Hammer Marks
In this lesson, Aram takes out his rounding hammer and removes the peen hammer marks that were made during the lengthening and widening phases. Consequently, we’ll also get a little bit of a widening of the blade during this process as well.
