3 pieces of 5/8 round textured and twisted ready to get forge welded. I use a v block when I'm forge welding this. Helps trap the material in a way that it is constantly getting forge into itself. If I put it straight on the face of the anvil I would imagine the seems would constantly be moving apart making it difficult to sustain any progress forge welding this awkward shape. #blacksmith #makersmovement #broDoYouEvenForge
