Maybe there is a thread on this topic in this very large web site. Being spanking new to this site, I can't find that thread. OK guys be gentle, I am completely new to the forging and stock removal methods in knife making. Building a propane forge is out of the realm of possibilities. I have been using a coal forge, a forged steel anvil and a Little Giant 25lb power hammer in my shop for about 2 years. I am setting up a KMG in the shop at present. That being said, I am in the market for a commercially produced 2 burner propane forge. The budget is $500 including shipping. I have looked at th
So I have been using a hand crank coal forge for some time now and have been getting tired of starting and maintaining the fire. I've been looking into buying a gas forge and have looked at Majestic Forge and Diamondback forges. After reading some threads in here I decided magestic was poorly made and couldn't weld easily.

Or if you think it would be worth my time and money to just make one and buy the burners then any advice o

This is quite unfortunate as they seem to offer a good well regarded product. The next best I have been able to find are the Chile models. I was hoping some of y
I am getting back into blacksmithing as a serious hobby. I mentored under a blacksmith for my senior project in high school, but it has been a while and my knowledge is a bit rusty. As far as forges go, I have decided on a gas forge, but am still deciding between the 2 burner Diamondback Blacksmith model, the NC Whisper Momma or Whisper Deluxe. Does anyone have experience with these models, or have other recommendations? I plan on just general blacksmithing at this point, but would like something versatile for future projects. Thanks.
