Nothing like repetition to hone your skills...

I finished the 28 remaining blanks the next day. Was a little faster that 6 minutes per tool with 5 in the forge at a time and not much resting between. Now for some rough grinding, heat treating, and finishing. On the plus side the class on the 14th should be fun and I shouldn't have to make this many sets if we do the class again in the future.
