    Time to say good bye to the Break Drum Forge

    Where i live you can get coal for under 25 cents a pound, is that how much it should be?

    San mai Q's

    So I've been thinking about trying san mai lately and I've got a few questions. If you were to have your High carbon steel in the middle and one piece of, say 440 stainless for example on both sides. Do you have to weld the 440 onto the high carbon or could you wrap some high temp wire really tightly around the steel and put it into the fire, then after its really hot start pounding on it with the hammer? Also, could you heat the high carbon up really hot then put the 440 on and start pounding it? Do you have to heat up both pieces to have them stick together? Get what im trying to say?

    ...And so it begins!

    Is this for KITH? Or just for the next project? That design looks amazing...simple but so nice looking..

    Friction Folder Q's

    Yeah thats why I don't want to use the angle grinder it could cause a lot of problems, the wiggles and hammer marks are not that bad, I just want a faster way to sand it.

    Friction Folder Q's

    So I had an idea, that would maybe speed up the process of finishing this. Could I use a hand held wood sander to get rid of all the wiggles and shallow hammer marks in the blade? It would take some time but I think it might work. Good or bad idea?

    Question about files&Plunge lines

    So lets say you have the plunge line on your knife perfect 90 degree right angle, Would that crack in the heat treat? If a perfect plunge line does not cause cracking, is it necessary to round the corners of the file you use to make the bevels on your knives? Get what im saying??

    Okay thanks, since I have a pipe in the forge i can let it soak.

    Friction Folder Q's

    Since I’m going to use O-1 for my KITH blade, I should probably know how to Heat treat it, also since I’m doing full stock removal the metal won’t be heated. So can I just heat it to non magnetic and quench??
