Default Ladle Set

These days I don't often get to forge something just because I want to. Yesterday I decided I wanted to forge me a ladel. Ended up forging me a set of three. Now I have to decide where to hang them in the kitchen.

Very nice, John.

I'm wondering about the rivets; are they reasonably "water-tight"?
I'm not asking to be critical but out of ignorance and I do realize they don't really need to be.
But I am curious as to what you can expect from the process.

Cutter,
Although the rivets are hammered tight I doubt they are water tight. I am sure that over the years some corrosion will occur. Being as the handles and bowls are both mild steel they will have to be oiled after use.

Like I said, it wouldn't make one bit of difference to me anyway but what I am sure about is I really like the way you wrapped those leaves around the ends of the handles.
That is such a nice finishing touch.

I appreciate it also..

Nice work. You did a fantastic job at the lower lip of the pour spouts.. no sharp edges or nicks..

did you use a shaped swage block or just a bottom swage in the anvil?

Allessence,
I used a swedge block to form the bowl but I used a V-swage hardy made from 2" x 2" x 1/4" angle iron to form the spouts.
