Hello everyone, This is my first build and first post. After scouring the beginners section, I found an old air compressor tank at my local scrap yard and started building my forge based on all the advice you've all given. I am very aware that the tank is way bigger than I need for knives, but it's what I have. I started by cutting out the front and back windows and cleaning it out.
Good evening all. I just wanted to poke my head in and say hi. I'm new to bladesmithing, and just got my first piece of o-1 steel, plus a few tools, and am looking forward to crafting my first blade. I've always have had a fascination with blacksmithing since I was a kid, and finally, 25 years later, I've decided to pursue my passion of blacksmithing knives, swords, and tools. I just wanted to thank all of the masters and grandmasters for all of their invaluable posts, advice, and suggestions. I'm looking forward to start crafting!!
This in my latest knife project and i was wondering what category this might fall into. I know there is a placement with swords via the oakshot i believe might be wrong, but either way its a big knife thing. I also would appreciate any tips or some helpful criticism.
