    Hey to all on this sub forum .
    I joined here to get some info last yr about forges needless to say i havemt upgraded yet i ended up sticking with my homemade wood forge now the time has come to upgrade i have gotten my shed and a few other bits sorted so the forge is next .
    I really want a nc tool co forge i cant decide between the two burner knifemaker or the whisper momma deluxe .
    I am unsure if i will ever make anything besides a knife .
    But the cheaper price and larger door may be a better option in case i want to try other my ma8n quedtion is would both of these forges do the same jobs equally .
    170 dollars between em with the knifemaker bein more expensive with the tax ill be payin the cheaper price tag is appealling any input or opinions appreciatted ironkid

    I like the three burner Lowboy model, but the Knifemaker 21 is another good choice. The two burner Momma is just a smaller version of the lowboy and for the extra $55 you get a lot more from the Lowboy.

    My lowboy has run for over 20 years and I have only relined it once. It is a professional unit made to be used daily.

    Whatever forge you buy, drink a Guinness for me when using it.

    Jameson is a perfectly acceptable drink when there is no single malt scotch around :)
