13 inch Forged Chopper
« on: May 15, 2021, 06:10:42 PM »
Closed my Tippit Forge South, headed back to Boston after a 1 1/2 years at our Aiken farm due to Covid. My forge has been off limits to everyone except ME! But our neighbor who is a big fan of Forged in Fire and who is taking care of mowing the lawn & horse paddocks helped me forge up a Big Chopper with a Walnut handle that he wanted. Knife 13inches OAL from 5160 carbon spring steel with walnut handle...tippit
