    The blade is so beautiful, everything is flawless, but can you put it in a couple of test, like a strength test to see if that blade really has the strength as it should be.. Thanks.

    Masterful work. That had to be the lightest straw color for a sword I have ever seen. Can you get away with that because of the lower carbon steel?

    I'm confused as to why you are building bellows into a propane forge. That burner isn't set up to be dual fuel capable. I'm assuming it's just for looks. Is this portable forge going to be used for demonstration purposes?

    • Freerk Wieringa
      Freerk Wieringa 2 days ago

      Yes. But I can also use the bellows on one of the burners.

  • Michael Roof

  • Trey Grubbs

    I come here to learn, so I don't mind asking dumb questions. Why do you need the ginormous bellows on a propane fired forge? Bellows make sense on a coal fired forge, but not so much propane. Can someone help me understand?

    • Freerk Wieringa
      Freerk Wieringa 2 days ago

      @Trey Grubbs I have a plan for more autentic forging videos. I need a shop or studio for this purpose. I would like to use the container for this as it is a controlable and relatively small room so I build this transportable shop more authentic looking. Also the presentation value of old tools are great on shows, especially pieces that are not shown that much like ballows.

    • Trey Grubbs
      Trey Grubbs 2 days ago

      @Freerk Wieringa That's what I was thinking, but I thought I would ask. You put a lot of work into it and it took up do much room, I thought there might be other reasons. Add with everything you build, it's beautiful. Also loved the horse and rider in the background at 0:15.

    In watching the wootz docu on Alfred pendray he eluded to thermal cycling like a minumum of 6 times all the way to black to shrink the grain structure and bring out the carbides clusters, mind you the we're adding a carbiding agent, I believe .02% vanadium

      He does exquisite works indeed. AFAIK his videos especially knives and swords are commissioned/ ordered works. So, yes I believe you can commission a similar knife from this video by contacting him. Go to his about-page to find his email.
