Description

Our Brick Forge Kit with Small Burner contains:

  • 8x K-23 or K-26 refractory bricks
  • 1x 2kg bucket of high-temperature refractory mortar
  • 1x Bkit5 – small Gameo gas forge burner

Working temperature of up to 1420C.

Each brick measures approximately 230 x 115 x 75 mm.

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.

    Just put my kit together, after using a coffee can forge over the last few years I’m not dissapointed in the upgrade. Wow, what a difference the firebricks make. This will give me alot more heat to build and heat treat larger knives. That single burner is powerful and I can easily upgrade to a double burner if need be. Thanks for the quick delivery too.

    Great little setup when you’re just starting out. For blacksmithing or knife making, its fairly cheap and is helpful when you’re not really sure what you are looking for.
    I recommend that if you’re wanting to start blacksmithing this kit is the place to start!

    Very good starter forge. I went from a charcoal forge to this, and it is a different world. This forge gets very hot very quickly, you won’t be waiting long in between heats.
