Hot dog in a bun weld video

OK, I managed to capture everything but forging the blade out before the memory ran out, but the major parts are in there, I hope it's clear but if anyone has any questions feel free.

Just watched the video. Great job. Yes, you do need to get an A/C adapter so you do not need to rely on batteries. :D How do you like your forge. I've been running my Knifemaker forge for two years now and have no complaints. Are you going to post some pictures or more videos? I would like to see the finished "Hot Dog" knife. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Troy! As I was watching the billet roast away I thought "nc forge, I love you" I'd buy another 2 if I needed and could afford them, best forge I have ever used. Here is some photos of the knife I got it hardened and tempered:

Thanks Bryan!

 

Hehe Matt i had to fill the time I figured since I cleaned up it would be good :D. I found that big blue water barrel in the stream behind my shop, paid the kid that lives in the apartments nearby to fill it up for 3$ :D

Nice work, quick hint for battery life, turn it off in between heats, granted might make it a little choppy but saves a little power here and there. But looked great.....

thanks for the video Slammin' Sammy. Is that a veg chopper or a more general cleaver,chopper. I couldn't tell the real thickness, just the relative geometry.

For some reason I thought you may be making some kitchen stuff these days, too. That's why I am thinking veg chopper. Chinese cooks can chop an entire garden in about 20 minutes with one of those.

 

YOu had to do the lighting the smoke with the billet trick, nice touch. Maybe directing blacksmith vids is your real calling.

Kevin, it's a general chopper but I hop to make these geared towards the kitchen crowd, thickness is about 1/4" and it's flat forged then flat ground. This is WAY thick for a chinese type cleaver they are thin like lasers, but it would be good for chopping meat or boning a chicken, more like a Deba.

Hi Sam

 

nice shop tour and vid

 

even with the risky cig lite... ah ah ah... safety safety.. ! :o

 

 

by the bye... if you look at some barongs... they also can have a steel bit put in a similar weld ... a very handy technique

 

nice blade

Nice job! Now, I will be doing a similar if not the same thing with a small practice blade. I want to try and do a similar process to that of a katana blade with the use of tamahagane steel which I plan on making with black sand as the "jacket". I have been reading up on the process but you used a "flux" I believe (or as you called it sauerkraut haha) which I don't remember being part of the process. It would be great if you could make a little tutorial on what you did since it seemed to work pretty well for you. :)

Cool video.

 

Not meaning to be nit-picky, but what you are referring to is generally called a Chinese Chef Knife. They do have actual cleavers of course (the few I have seen are about 3/8" thick), but the "cleaver shape" of the Chinese chef knife is used as a sort of shovel. You can chop up a whole pile of greens, or whatever, then slide the edge of the blade under your pile and transfer the whole pile off the cutting board. Its all about efficiency and speed.

 

I mainly make Usuba, Deba, and Nakiri. I haven't tried making a Chinese chef knife yet, but I own a Chinese made one that I use in the kitchen almost exclusively. People can brag about their European style chef knives all they want, but when it comes to efficiency with veggies, none of the western style knives even come close to the Chinese chef knife, IMO.

 

The Usuba is probably the king of veggie knives, as far as accuracy of cut goes, but you can't pick up an entire head of chopped Bok Choy at once with an Usuba, like you can with the Chinese chef knife... ;)

Very cool Sam, I need to get one of those power hammers. They seem to work pretty slick.

Thanks guys!

 

Greg you safety sally :D compared to the crucible one that was like lighting a smoke off of toast lol I never knew Barongs had a similar construction, in all truth i've not seen much info on them but really haven't looked either do you have a good link?

 

Scott, homemade steel works a whole lot different then mild steel and 1084, but I think you assume incorrectly the Japanese do not use flux. Rice Straw ash, and I have heard rumors of other fluxes, including borax. The next time I do it, I will photo the process instead of a video for better clarity.

 

Sean thanks for the info!

 

Neil, I love it. It does most everything I need it too, the only upgrade I ever see doing is getting a bigger one :D
