I Forge Iron



Recommended Posts

Hello i have been hanging around on the forums learning what i can. I watched, Knife Making Unplugged that was recommend in a post on the forum. That was a very good informational film, really answered most of my questions. Tim Lively makes it look too easy.

What i was wondering is, is it really that easy. Since I'm a beginner i was thinking of building this forge to start with. Charcoal Forge. But instead of using a hand blower use a spare hair dryer that i have. The parts i can easily get. I was wondering the knife that he makes is that type knife easy to forge for a beginner? Or do one of you recommend something better?

Welcome aboard Stroyeror, glad to have ya.

Most folk recommend you learn to blacksmith before you start forging knives. Starting out with knives means learning a lot of skills sets at once rather than one or two at a time.
