I Forge Iron

Brand New but eager to learn

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to the forum and wanted to start forging. I am primarily interested in bladesmithing, but would also like to make small things for around the house. I built most of my furniture and would like to make fixtures, etc. I intend to build a small gas forge, with the intent to upgrade if I end up doing a lot of work. I will also probably buy steel for blades in order to work with a known steel.

 I am in need of a couple things, one, an anvil or equivalent. Being in Alaska and fairly new, I don't even know a scrapyard where I could get some steel that would work. Since I am primarily looking at blades and smaller work I am good with something like 4" x 4". The second thing I need is advice, so I would love to connect with some local guys who have been doing this for awhile.

Thanks in advance for any feedback and info. This looks like a great resource from what I have seen.
