    I have a sneaking suspicion that there are a number of neophyte blade makers on the site that would like to see that forge in detail--

    I love swords and would definitely be interested in a viable home-made forge.

    Funny thing is a lot of folk I know think Im insane because I like to make things rather than buy them.[loco]
