Gas forges are becoming more and more popular in the Australian Blacksmithing and blade-smithing community. Gas Forge Burners and Components are clean and no fuss, heat up quickly and have excellent control of temperature almost eliminating burnt jobs. Designed for smaller knife-making forges these burners are a fantastic option for the knife maker.

This Kit Includes:
- 8x K-23 or K-26 refractory bricks with dimensions approx. 230 x 115 x 75 mm and with a working temperature of up to 1420C
- 2kg bucket of high-temperature refractory mortar
- Gas Forge Small Burner with Hose and Regulator 41mj/hr
K-26 bricks do an incredible job of containing high temperatures, but they are soft and fragile and they break down over time. They can crack from having moisture in the bricks that expands as they heat up fast. You can reduce this by heating them slowly to allow the moisture to evaporate before it boils, but some cracking is also an inevitability with soft fire bricks. They still work when cracked and they can be patched with refractory mortar.
When used with a gas burner we recommend running it at a low pressure with the air inlet mostly closed for 5 or so minutes, before turning up the pressure or opening up the air inlet. Do this the first time you use a burner with your bricks, especially if they are stuck together with refractory mortar, and also after any period of damp weather. If you see steam rising from your bricks they are wet and you should lower the heat until they stop steaming.
Rules and laws on gas forges vary from state to state and it is normally mandatory that your forge comply and be approved to your state authority’s requirements. Make sure you contact your local specialist gasfitter and authority to ensure your design complies with all local requirements. All parts are manufactured to, and comply with all relevant standards, however you need to ensure the appliance you build complies in your state for your application.
Gas Forges should only ever be used in a well-ventilated space. Check all connections for leaks using soapy water.
