NC Knifemaker Forge?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm looking at buying my first forge this week after having taken my first class and absolutely loving it.

I've been trying to look into the NC Knifemakers Forge over the Whisper Momma based on some complaints I've seen on the Whisper Momma not getting to forge welding temperature very easily. 

Does anyone have any experience with this forge? I can't find any previous threads talking about this one. If you have any thoughts let me know!

(I'm looking to buy rather than build because I've been buying materials for a few weeks and loved my first forging session and would like to get started. I have no welding experience and I feel like it would take quite a while to build my own. Therefore I've just been trying to find what I can best get for my money that isn't going to be a gas hog or cheap firebrick forge like a diamondback.)

 

Thanks!

I don't have one but have used another smiths NC Knifemaker. It had no trouble reaching welding temps, although I think he said it needed to be coated with Plistix 900. That was several years ago.
