  5. A beauty! I too would love to see the hilted up blade...
  6. Looking good so far! As Kevin said handle shape is all important!
  7. I use a 'portable' gas supply, no regulator, just jetted right, adjustable air in let, don't see any burners...you can't feed the flame through the front of the forge...I'll posta pic if you need, but Johns link is all you need to work it out!the 'trashcan' thingmaay work with charcoal, but too deep in my opinion..you'll neel air 'volume' to make it work! Not high pressure, just plenty air flow...a pic of the entire setup would help as I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve here...

  15. Oh, by the way,I temper old files/saw blades etc, at 150 C, two cycles of 1hr each...then test, (on an oil stone) to see if it is too hard/soft, experiance of sharpening many knives tells me...
  16. As Alan said...looks big to me, nothing to refer to, but having snapped many a blade...that grain doesn't look even...and as Gabriel asked, did you? A good check before working old steel is to grind it smooth, then etch, (vinegar will do,) rub down with water paper on a hard backing, and cracks will show up...as a 'rust line' then you can expect the steel to break! I've learned to test every piece I make before all that hard work, if a flaw shows, put it aside 'till you make a P/weld billet, it should weld it's self together again during this process! But that does look as if you've over heate
