    About to start forging....

    Nothing else to add to the advice that's already been provided above. I've been forging for about a year and like using .250 x 1" 1084 to forge hunting size knives. My next order will be .250 x 1.25" and 1.5" as I'm wanting to start messing around with some camp knives and Bowies in the near...
