    Re: Pfiel Tools

    The reason I asked the question was I spent parts of my younger years up there. Born and raised (for the most part ) on Lake of the Woods. Dad worked construction, so spent time off and on working on the range. West to school in Two Harbors, Silver Bay, Babbitt and anoter little town that I can't even remember the name of. Graduated from Babbitt in 1961 and worked building the railroad from there to Silver Bay for awhile.

    Hi Al,

    I grew up just south of Duluth. We used to go up to 'the range' quite often. I remember walking the RR tracks picking up taconite pellets to use in my slingshot.

    Hi Al!! Haven't seen you around in a bit, glad to see your posts (and as-always-wonderful sense of humor).

    I agree, Rick - I just read through this thread, hoping to GOD I don't need to understand any of it :-)

    The 'Arrowhead Region' of Minnesota is the heart of the Iron Mining section of that state, up near the Canadian border on the Lake superior shore, if that helps.

    Does the term 'Arrowhead Country' mean anything to anybody?

    I have to say that I am in awe of the knowledge base on the message board.

    Magnetite is also known as black iron spinel, or just spinel. It's FeOFe2O3 and can exist as an intermetallic compound or phase in some iron alloys. I doubt we would want it in a tool steel, but the magnetite ore was a very special ore many years ago. Today, anyone, anywhere, can make steel and alloy steel to standard specs. The Swiss and other European steel makers (Sheffield)were able to make some very high quality steels when it was very difficult to do so. It's all pretty standard now.

    They tried making tacos from it once, but it had kind of a tinny taste, and rusted when they used iceberg lettuce!

    hmmm, I would think if you could extract Magnetite with a magnet, you could extract Taconite with a tortilla.

    Re: Pfiel Tools

    I have four Pfeil tools and they are starting to grow on me. They fabulous when carving basswood or butternut, but yesterday I was making a hickory cross, and was reminded that the narrow bevel is not so good for hard wood. I would suggest you choose your wood according to the tools you have to wolrk it, resharpening can become a tiresome task. I must admit that my beloved Two Cherries tools are more difficult to use in soft wood than the Pfeil, the bevel is a little more aggressive. So I guess the 'ideal' tool set includes tools with both bevels--the right tool for the right job.
