newsmth Posted November 19, 2009 Share Posted November 19, 2009 Hi everyone! So here's the deal... i'm pretty much brand new to any type of smithing (although i did dabble a little while i was bored in high school). I am going to build my own forge next week using some random parts from around the junkyard and start in practicing. I could really use any and all tips you have for a newbie such as myself. but specifically, i would like to forge a decent (not being too optimistic) high carbon (something like 1060 and up) knife for my best friend for christmas. i have been reading a LOT of material, but anything you all could tell me would be beyond helpful. thanks in advance! patrick Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
