i'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
>>

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
>>

Some day I'll make my own chef's knife, and chinese vegetable cleaver, but until then, I'm just a poor rentoid.

Reference, 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
>>

eurochad 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
>>
>>2550138
ah i got myself an half open shed for the forge that is more convenient
>>
>>2550002
noice work anon
i know the reference for that did you oil the handle? it somehow looks dry
>>
>>2550154
Thank you! I did oil the handle, but yeah, maybe I'll apply a little more.
