    Hello everybody,

    I've held off on posting new titanium goods for over a week now in order to put more into one thread, so here it is. I'm also reposting and price dropping a couple items - the titanium spoon/fork set with matching stainless steel camp style handles, and the large titanium spoon with a camp style handle. Every forged item in this batch is different, but they're all forged by hand, by me, from 3/8 titanium round bar. Playing with designs is fun, but I may zero in on some in the future if folks are interested in that. I also made my first pair of forged titanium chopsticks thanks to a great member here. They are spoken for, but I look forward to making more.

    All items are priced before shipping, please add $3 for shipping or $6 for Priority Mail w/ insurance. My paypal is parkwoodshop@gmail.com, no friends and family please.

    Here is a shot of everything for sale:

    First up I have my second completed titanium kuksa / porringer. This is a real success for me, simply because it confirms that it can be done by hand. I find titanium sheet pretty difficult to work with, but I was able to make a considerably larger bowl on this kuksa than I previously thought possible. It holds 12+ ounces of liquid, measures 4.75" diameter, and weighs 70.7 grams. The handle is forged titanium secured with four copper rivets. $105 SOLD

    Items 1-4:
    [​IMG]

    1) Forged titanium barbecue style fork. This was difficult! 6.75" long, weighs 19.2 grams. $30 SOLD

    2) 6.75" long, weighs 27.8 grams. $45 SOLD

    3) 7.25" long, weighs 23.6 grams. $45 SOLD

    4) 7.75" long with a nice square-tapered, gently curved handle. Weighs 33.8 grams. $48 SOLD

    Items 5-9:

    5) An exercise in lightness with a long, thin handle. 8.5" long, weighs only 20.5 grams. $48

    6) An exercise in stretching titanium, the bowl on this spoon is as big as I can do. 8.5" long, weighs 44.4 grams. $48 SOLD

    7) I love these riveted versions. Lightweight wide handle riveted to a very good size bowl. 8.75" long, weighs 27.5 grams. $48 SOLD

    8) Repost and price drop of an awesome large camp spoon. The bowl is 2" x 2.5" titanium and the spoon is about 9.25" overall length. "PARK" stamped in the bowl. Weight is 35.2 grams. $35

    9) This is my favorite spoon yet, and it was much harder to make than expected. I had to clean up the ring area with a sander but it turned out great. 8.6" long, weighs 29.1 grams. $55 SOLD


    I have this spoon/fork set still available, they are 7.25" long and weigh 47.8 grams combined. I added my new makers mark to the fork. $70
