  1. Welcome Tim! I really like the look of that blade. -Thomas
  2. Thank you!
  3. Hello, Can I please change my name from tjk to Thomas Kadatz. Thank you
  4. Here are some pictures of my first knife. I know it is pretty rough but it cuts. The blade is made out of a old Nicholson pipeliner file, and the handle is oak from a tree in a family members yard oiled with boiled linseed oil. I quenched it in warm canola oil and tempered it at 425 for two one hour cycles. comments appreciated. -Thomas

  12. This anvil is one that is sitting at my grandpas farm, unfortunately these are the only pictures I have of it right now. Could any of you guys tell me if it is decent quality? or what make it is? I hit it with a hammer and it seems to have a good bounce but then again it is the only one I have ever tested. Thanks -Thomas
  13. I am planning on using one blown burner and had originally planned on making the forge body around 16 inches.
