Korean HoMi Gardening Tool

Korean HoMi Gardening Tool

Hi, I’m Andy and welcome to my channel FORGE WRIGHT.

This video is a request video posted for John Switzer from Black Bear Forge I contacted John and asked if he would produce a video of himself forging a HoMi and he has replied asking for a video link of this tool. So here it is John, and thank you for taking the time to check out the video and considering making a video of how it should be forged.

Thanks for watching this video and if you enjoy it please give it the Thumbs Up and make sure you Hit the Subscribe Icon so I can expand my channel.

    G’day Andy I’m Nath & I’m just starting out as a Blacksmith here in Tassie too. I live in North Tasmania in Elizabeth Town.I’ think some 20×20 mm square Bar or even 12 mm and try to form a Blade on one end and then draw out & taper the handle. Use horn of the anvil to form up the curve or maybe a swage block or the vice even if you have one. Have a go mate nothing to lose.

    Interesting type of blade. Very curious where this may lead to

    Yeongju ho-mi’s balance is good.

    ..Hopefully John can work this in Andy. It would make an interesting build. i saw a guy here in the States on a TV show a few years back and they posted it on Youtube. He uses 1075 steel for his line of garden tools, i’ll leave the link. i learned a heap from it…

    Looks cool Andy, I think you’d have to start off with some large stock so as to get some material for the blade digging part.
