We're pleased to have a new tw-90 grinder added to our facilities here at Redforge. Here's to the many products it'll enable the construction of. Big thanks to @traviswuertz for making an awesome piece of gear.

Another Christmas gift! This one's an integral hoof pick for Leo's mother, a flame blued mild steel pick with a purple heart handle. What wasn't forged was done with files!

Merry Christmas to you! It's been a little while since we've posted but what we've been working on can finally be revealed! This knife is a gift for Krusty here @redforgeewt, on the left a resist design by his daughter, and on the right his sons thumb print (we thought it would be fun after a long debate about why you don't want finger prints in Damascus etching)
The blade is 1084, deep etch and blued guard, and a green dyed maple burl handle. The handle and guard were matched and shaped by hand.

Progress is coming smoothly as we set the foundation of our new facilities. Special thanks to @b_mcstunna and @williamzecchini for lending us their backs.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
The results of our forge autopsy are in! As many of you know we here at Red Forge are moving, so it was about time to break down our forge for the move. We went into this break down in rather a less than optimistic mindset, but after breaking it down that has totally turned around! We managed to save more than half of the fire bricks and should be able to patch the area where flux ate into the bottom tray and the top tray appears to be in good enough condition to cut and install our planned ribbon burners. All in all very promising! Shout out to @dekerknives for a fantastic lecture on forge construction at this past #ashokanbladesmith seminar!!

Sorry for the delay, had a GREAT time at the Ashokan bladesmith seminar this past weekend! Got to hang out with @jordanlamotheblades and a ton of other awesome people. We're getting ready to make the move north here at Red Forge so these next two weeks are going to be jam packed, keep an eye out for our progress on the new shop build! Needles to say, we're excited! o°
