Blacksmith competition

Never done one so any takers would be welcome. I think it would be good to make a Rams head hook with the mild steel provided and with a time limit say 1 hour, an example below. Would be held on the 24th or 25th June 2017 during the scything festival. Anybody can have a go and will be provided with a forge for one hour.

It is also possible to bring along a viking knife, hooks, poker or something  simalar to be judged, all work must be your own and made by hammer, anvil & basic tools
