Hello to all who read this. I am a brand new member, and am currently just in the process of getting setup to start forging. To be honest, I haven't ever forged anything, it just really interests me. I've always wanted to make my own knives.
My question is what type of forge would be the best to start with?
I found the following forge online after a little searching and it doesn't seem too unreasonably priced. I've seen cheaper and I have seen more expensive, but I thought one in between would be best. What I'm really looking to get out of my first forge is experience. And I'm only looking to make simple knives to start. I would eventually build my own, but only once I know how they work and how the best way to set one up would be.
If anyone has any input on this brand or this particular forge it would be much appreciated. And I was also curious If someone could explain to me the 30k-BTU-burner (is it good? and how long it would last using a 20 gallon grill propane tank?)
Thanks to all who comment. I look forward to getting started once I get the equipment that I need.
