Taking on forging a titanium axe in the blacksmith shop today.

It’s a very challenging project, as titanium is incredibly tough and hard to forge. First I had to carefully heat it up to forging temperatures and then by a combination of working under the power hammer and at the anvil, I was able to turn the raw piece of titanium into an axe head. Grinding the axe as it turns out was harder than hard, but after spending a couple months at the grinder I was able to get it done. For the handle, a beautiful piece of purpleheart hardwood was selected. Carefully ground and shaped to fit the hand, it was wedged tight with a black walnut wedge. What a cool project to build as it makes a very nice axe when it’s all finished up! Hope you enjoy the video.

My name is Timothy Dyck. I got hooked on blacksmithing when I was 13 years old. I quickly realized that in order to keep blacksmithing I needed money to buy costly supplies, so I started making small items and selling them at the local farmer markets. The farmer markets turned into craft shows and craft shows turned into custom projects. Right out of high school I had the opportunity to apprentice under a blacksmith, where I worked with him for four years. We did projects for some of the most prestigious houses around the rocky mountains and were apart of many large public sculptures. I learned many valuable lessons while working under his training, but the desire to set up my own shop and go out on my own was always something I dreamed about.

So in 2013 I started setting up my full time blacksmith shop out of BC, Canada making custom projects and products like railings, gates, lights, stairs, fences and all the many blacksmithing tools required to keep the blacksmithing shop running. I love what I do and this is my dream job. I enjoy showing you what’s going on in the blacksmith shop through the lens of a camera and would love to have you along for the ride as I live out my dream of being a blacksmith in the 21st century.
