  1. This is the guy I'm putting in the forge I'm making right now. As long as you have access to pipe fittings it should be simple and won't break the bank. Have no idea what might be better but it is functional. There are several other designs floating around on youtube and other sites, and some of the more experienced members here will no doubt weigh in.
  2. How'd you go about tempering this beast?

  4. Looks great, glad it worked out the second time.

  12. Though you wouldn't be able to tell looking at my activity here, I haven't been slacking off. This was actually what I would call my first completed knife. Ebony, coat hanger pins, 1080 steel. Pretty rough. After the previous, I wanted to work with 1095 and Bocote. So I did. Got most of the way through polishing, dropped it onto some wood, and the tip bent.
