My little work :) 2
#1
Barbed, pointed, forged bend of hook 5/0, filed the shank for gut and previously polish. There are some scratches, I think that it will be little filed and then polished Wink)) Some good critic and remarks will be useful for me. Thank you!!!


So, I have done some improvements

Good looking hook to me. I like the shape, the point and barb work is super...my only thought is I might, MIGHT, taper the shank to a slightly finer point. That is just personal taste of course.
AH...if I were just a bit younger I might give the hook making thing a try. Keep up the fine work switch!!

A very sexy looking iron! I’d agree on a little more of a taper for the shank point.

Hi, Marty! Probably you are right, but this taper is in section like a drop for bending the gut in the best way.There is no round taper.
