    Refractory suggestions

    You might want to look at the following post Kiya: I built a coal forge some time back. Dave from Glendale forge welded up the firepot for me. He is in Thaxted but I bet any local forge will do it for you.

    Dad's design

    That’s a great sheath. Good collaborative package overall .

    New Santoku-ish Chef's knife

    See what you mean about the handle but that’s fairly minor. Good work overall I think.

    Bangin' & Jammin'

    I just stumbled across a band called The HU. Only two songs on YouTube so far, Yuve Yuve Yu and Wolf Totem. Should be good to pound metal to.
  8. That turned out well Shane. I love your stone tumbler.

    Quenching my first knife

    Just remember that Liam Fuller on FiF burned his shop down not closely watching the turkey fryer he was using to heat his quench oil.

    What I might make

    That’ll work. Got to stretch yourself though.

    Very nice Gary. If I ever get over the pond I’m going to have to make sure to get to one of these shows.
