“Hot enough to forge weld, small enough to still be portable!”
One of the only knifemaker specific forges available, it’s designed and built by knifemakers. All the improvements to the forge over the past 7 years have come from recommendations from knifemakers. All forges are hand made in Iowa, USA, so yours will vary slightly from the picture.
The Atlas Mini Forge uses insulating firebrick. This brick is softer and very efficient, and is much safer for your lungs than wool.
The Atlas Mini Forge can use kerosene or brake cleaner as flux without damaging any bricks.
My personal preference is to weld fluxless. I’ve had great success due to the neutrality of the flame in the Atlas Mini.
Be aware that the bricks are very fragile and will crack due to expansion from heating, moisture, etc. This is normal and unavoidable. Most noticeably, the front brick will crack from air moisture even before use. We have used thermal imaging to inspect the forges during use and have found that it does NOT affect the performance of the forge.
