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!!
