Gas is about 20x easier to work with but there is a certain something about the smell of a coal
forge that takes me back. I will probably go the easy and sensible route in the end and stick with
gas. Much less worries about keeping impurities out of the steel, cheaper to deal with a hell of a
lot easier. Probably will not be able to afford a sword size forge at first though. I'll start
with tantos and work my way up.
Don't know if you already have it or not, but i bought this book about 14 years ago and have loved
it ever since.
