    Hi everyone!
    New to the blog here. Looking for some feedback on the Devil Forge, specifically we are considering the DFPROF2+1D GAS PROPANE FORGE to be used for heat treatment (stock removal blades). Would like to put in a square tube for indirect heating. This would be a significant upgrade from our MAP torch stacked brick setup. Long term plan is a DIY knife kiln, lots of resource here! Any feedback would be appreciated! TIA.

    If it's just for heat treating, id highly recommends going straight for the temp-controlled kiln. It'll likely run you less than the forge. Being in Winnipeg, you can also source pretty much everything from Sounding Stone. I built mine for just under $400cad

    I think that is the exact forge I have, bought it just over a year ago.

    Here is the link where I bought mine on eBay.

    Truth is I haven’t used it a pile. I’ve thermocycled and hardened 6 blades with it (moved on to stainless and I send that out for HT). It’s the only forge I’ve ever used. It arrived fairly quickly considering it comes from over the pond. As a noob I realize this feedback isn’t super helpful but I can say it worked the way I expected it to and it seems to be well built.
