Default Hand forged choker chain with trace hook

Not much to add in terms of explanations.. It's a choker chain that can be used with chain or rope for pulling..

I started half last year at the Bolton Fair and finished it off this year.. I've got some logs to skid so it made perfect sense to finish..

I changed the link length because I was going to give someone a chain making lesson but decided since they weren't going to be there to finish it up since the 3/8" round was all ready marked out..

Thanks guys..

I too like the looks of hand forged chain, especially once it's got some ground use on it..
