Makeshift Forge

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

I annealed and shaped my first knife today!
The forge I used was simple but very effective!

It consisted of mud, a dog's bowl, a tin can, and a hair dryer.
I was surprised by how well it worked, actually, in minutes it had heated my misshapen file to cherry red, when I hammered it flat.

I'll upload some pics when i've got a bit more time.
