>>2549017i'd really like to get back into forging but i can't seem to find a reasonably priced pressure regulator and a coal forge (although i have one) is out of question
>>2549656never worked with gas, idk, why is coal out of queston? price hiked up realy bad here in europre but why can't you use it?
I need to get out in the shop more. I have numerous small projects I'd like to do but I have to get so many things out of the way to even start working on any blades
>>2549017Some day I'll make my own chef's knife, and chinese vegetable cleaver, but until then, I'm just a poor rentoid.
Sometimes fixing a warp doesn't work out
>>2549981But as the saying goes, "we don't make mistakes, only smaller knives"
It's an amateur's work, but this week I recycled a broken stainless knife into a 14th centurish european friction folder.
>>2550002prison shiv vibes
>>2550002Reference, although I made the handle out of wood.
I just came into a bunch of 4140 for cheap and might try a San Mai with a 52100 core. Is there anything that can go wrong due to the steel here
>>2549770eurochad as well. i have to dig out the forge and set it up outside every time i want to use it. and the outside place is shared with my tenant. i'd rather set up a gasforge than going down with rent
>>2550138ah i got myself an half open shed for the forge that is more convenient
>>2550002noice work anoni know the reference for that did you oil the handle? it somehow looks dry
>>2550154Thank you! I did oil the handle, but yeah, maybe I'll apply a little more.
