When I decided to set up Peening Day you can imagine I got a few funny looks from friends, even the ones who also mow with a scythe. So when I adjusted the name to International Peening Day it was even harder to convince them it’s not a joke.
Well, tomorrow is the day and I’ve had responses from folk around the UK, in Austria, New Zealand, Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, USA and Canada who will all be sharpening and peening. Please send a photo of your peening and I will post them up here.
If you’re starting out on your own and can’t find a teacher then I would recommend watching the peening videos from Neil Dudman. There are videos of working with the peening jig, anvil, testing the edge and more.
