    Pittsburgh Pa

    Hey, sorry to bother folks, I currently am in the Pittsburgh Pa area and have a Katana that needs HT'd and I no longer have a shop at the moment to work in. I am hoping to find someone with experience in creating Hamon's and a trough big enough to handle a katana sized piece. Thanks in advance...

    First post here, annnd it's a newbie question

    Personally I just assume any piping exp that for plumbing and or moving water is galvanized. In case you dont know it is used to prevent corrosion and iz Zinc Based which is not good to heat up and breath in. If however you do heat it in your forge a good sign is the color of the flame and a whitish residue that will show up on your forge.

    Laser Cut Knife Blanks and Engraving

    I used to work for a company pricing out the waterjet at 90 an hour for cutting so however long the job took. Laser might be a bit different in pricing.

    Dog head hammers

    chuckles, Dancing Frog has a web site, and I found my old 5lb dogshead hammer but it would cost you an arm and a leg for it. And for the record I have a 10lber on a regular hammer type handle that is my safe queen and its awkward even picking it up.

    Dog head hammers

    you can move alot of material with a 3lb hammer, you could just get a small handled sledge in the 5 lb range if that might work for ya, and cheaper if you can find it there, could reshape the other side into a cross...

    Dog head hammers

    Not sure if Sam Salvati still does or not, There are a couple other folks, I can recommend Brent Bailey in Ca, I have a couple of his hammers and then there are various sized ones from Japan Woodworker you have to look up Blacksmith hammers there. Those are the few i know and there are more if you look. Oh also look up gs tongs I met him a few times while he still lived in Wa.
