How to make a hand-powered charcoal forge

Quick Notes

  • Great idea and execution of a cheap, hand-powered forge. I can see this being quite portable!
  • Of course, a hair dryer would work very well, but I like the fact that this can be powered without electricity.
  • Make sure that your knife does get up to critical in a consistent manner. That’s probably the only downfall of a forge like this—lack of insulation and variation of temperature
