  1. I don't know were I would find railroad track and this looks really cheap but it is also very rusty.eBay: Anvil / Small / Rail Track / Japanese / Vintage (item 230047846498 end time Nov-19-06 20:00:00 PST) Would this work with a little sanding on the top?
  2. Well I thought the first post said it was illegal.I thought most if not all knife were legal as long as there aren't taken out of the home.Now I know there are a lot of laws about taken out in to other places outside the home.I think as long as the smith just didn't take any of his knifes out of home there would be no problem
  3. Hey guys I got black pipe from home depot and it is the right size charcoal forge.I look at and it was not listed as galvanized.I was just wondering if there is any bad stuff I should sand off and clean before putting.It looks just like the one in the pic of the forge. WOW I didn't read the new posts.Thanks for all the help.It should be done very soon after I get clay or cat litter LOL and put holes in the pipe.
  4. Hey would a grill like this work also or should I buy a ovel tub to make the charcoal forge?

  6. Great I found a great deal on 1095 texas knifemakers.One question which would make a nicer small beginner knife 1080 or 1095 they cost the same.
  7. Hey does anyone know a good place that ships carbon steels like 1086 for a good price?It will be for knife making.I have searched the net but a lot of the places were not clear on how much it cost.
  8. Thanks I feel better now I didn't want to start smithing get sick.I'll just stay clear of zinc and other coatings.
  9. Hey I read about PawPaw and it freaked me out.Does anyone know a good steel seller that list whats in it and sells just pure carbon still no zinc and other bad stuff on it?

  11. Well I have only found maybe 2-3 real nbthk sword.But I have seen a naginata put on a pizza box with nbthk papers so sometimes I check to make sure some moron cleaned a real one with steel wool or sand paper.But yeah I didn't see the kissaki was all wrong.
  12. Hey I love japanese blades and you keep to there style very well.Great tanto. BTW have you ever made a katana or wakizashi?
  13. I can tell fake from real when it comes to Japanese swords but the one looks like it has a real hamon but I can't tell?I don't know if its a fake hamon on a really bad polish job. eBay: 19th SHARP BLADE JAPANESE COWSKIN SHORT WAKIZASHI SWORD (item 290048661183 end time Nov-18-06 17:19:23 PST) Update Sorry it's fake I look at the top of the blade and it not real.Gota hate sword sellers on ebay.
