  1. Hello, I need help with pricing this knife. I was asking $800 but I think I may be way overshooting the value of the knife. 440c Stainless steel Nickel silver bolster and pommel Mammoth tooth handle Roughly 10-15 hours of work. Material cost and heat treat was around $300, and I usually ask $20/hour for labor, which brings me to $600-$800 for the knife. I know there are some minor imperfections in the blade and accents, but I don't know that they drive value down a whole lot so I'm looking for some pricing advice. Did I waste my money/time/effort by putting a mammoth tooth handle on a 440c blade? Am I even in the right ballpark with pricing at $800? If I'm in the right price range, what can I do to move this thing? If not, where should I be? Thanks in advance. Sorry if this is the wrong board for this post.
  2. So this is my forge that I have made. It has been made from 10mm side walls 100mm high, the base is a 5ml plate with a hole in the center, the legs are just 50x50ml square tube with end caps in them to stop the rust. I have taken a trucks brake plate as the firepot and to this I have attached a 50ml galvanised plumbing pipe leading to my waste hatch and to my valve to control the air inlet. In the background you can see my grandfathers 120amp oil cooled welder. The only concern I have with this build is that I had to weld the brake plate to the underside of the base plate as shown here. All I have left to do with this is to finish all the welds around the edges and connect up the blower that I have made out of a washing machine motor and a blower fan blade and Ill have my own smithy ready to fire up. What do you think?
