I've made several knives over the years including fixed blade, folders and automatics. Unfortunately I have not forged any blades from scratch, all my blades are stock removal, there's no safe place for me to set up a forge at my home.

Years ago my first setup for heat treating was a charcoal chimney starter and a leaf blower, it worked well but one of my blades was ruined in an instant. While heating the blade it was just about ready to be quenched when the blade partially melted, the leaf blower moved a little raising the heat very quickly and instantly toasted the blade.
The blade was from this knife.

Cool! Nice craftsmanship. It’s good to see somebody posting in the knife section. I don’t have experience making knives, but I collect them and love to sharpen on whetstones.
