Hiya Guys, Yesterday I started my puukko for the KITH. I had an old file and wrought lying around and thought "why not?". I have never forge welded wrought and steel together before and yesterday was a bit of the ol' trial by fire (sorry, just had to be said). I got them welded up, so far so good, but now I got to forge out the shape. I am using Charcoal but can just as easily switch to coal with an old brick 1800's style forge and hand bellows. I was wondering if anyone had any pointers or advice on forging it out (i.e. how hot should I be working the steel and wrought billet)? -Gabriel
