Our excellent instructor, ABS Mastersmith Ed Caffrey, decided for rubber to meet the road in this exceptional guide! There are a lot of theories on the Internet and its forums about how to properly forge your metals! Ed sees many of these theories first hand as he instructs many new knife makers on many of the forums he frequents. This is a very heated topic among knife makers (heh, pun wasn't intended but we'll leave it in...). Get ready to learn the truth about over-soaking your metal in the forge, as well as how to fix it when you make a mistake. This guide, a bit longer than 15 minutes, is easily one of the guides we know will change everything about how you work with your metals. This knowledge is A MUST to pass your Journeyman test!
