    Just joined the other day. Well we are cabinetmakers but years ago I was doing a lot of blacksmithing type work but only with mild steel. Thanks to forged in fire show which inspired my son of 15yrs we built a gas forge and got a couple of good anvils, 2 post vices and a bunch of hammers. I have been showing him the basics of hammering and forge welding and now we are making a few chef type knives. We are both busy with sports but try to get some time in one a week or so. He enjoys it as much as I do and it is a nice break from the computer oriented society. Last year we also began making longbows but that is more my hobby than his and my daughter is a deadly archer. Hope to hear from others in the area!

    Welcome to the forum. I'm sure that with your son being interested in knifemaking it will make it even more enjoyable. Sounds like you guys are set to go. Would love to see pics of the knives and even the long bows.
