LukeD Posted November 27, 2017 Share Posted November 27, 2017 Hello everyone. Hope you all are well. I am new here and just signed up this morning. I have been intrigued about blacksmithing and knife making for quite a few years. I have seen some Blacksmithing demonstrations a few different times and have always thought it would be a very gratifying hobby to do. I have been doing some reading and looking around to make a small charcoal forge and have found a few different designs and one I am going to try and make to start out with. my main focus that I would like to do is knife making mainly for gifts, friends and so on. I have seen how the Railroad spike knives have become very popular and I have a large availability to them. I know they are not the most high quality knife making material out there but I believe they would be a good starting point for me. I am going to be doing some more reading on here and also looking for some tools to use. I have a good place to set up a small forge out at my parents house that is covered and has a concrete floor as well with running water close also. hopefully I will be able to get started soon and I will probably be asking some questions so please bear with me as I learn and I am looking forward to learning.
