MKI Postbox Forge

The Postbox forge is definitely the most popular forge I produce at Black Dragon Forge and is perfect for Bladesmithing, Blacksmithing, general forging and heat treating of carbon steel.

This is the forge I have been using since I started smithing and almost every carbon steel knife, axe or sword I have made to date went through the Postbox forge.

The Postbox forge is perfectly suited for the beginner and professional alike and offers the smith a wide range of control over the environment in the forge chamber. Need to run hot and fast in an oxidizing atmosphere or low and slow in a reducing atmosphere? No problem in the Postbox forge. The gas pressure is controlled via the adjustable high pressure regulator and the amount of air being introduced into the forge is controlled by the yellow slider located on the burner.

I cast my first Postbox forge 12 odd years ago and have constantly refined and updated the design, the manufacturing process and the efficiency of the burner to give you the best product I possibly can. Yes, there are cheaper products on the market but sacrificing quality and a proven 12 year track record for a lower price is just not an option for me. Every forge I make and sell comes with my personal support and guidance that inevitably turns into a long term friendship.

The MKI Postbox forge features a compact and portable design that can operate from a single 16 kg LP Gas cylinder. The forge chamber is vibratory cast from a high quality, high heat refractory cement rated at 1350 degrees Celsius. The forge is easy to operate and at 40kPa pressure, consumes 0.5 kg of LP Gas per hour.

Each Postbox Forge comes complete with:
  • 1 X Black Dragon MKI Post-box Forge Chamber and Lid
  • 1 X High Pressure (HP) LPG Regulator
  • 1 X Dragon Burner
  • 1 X LPG Hose (1 Meter) and 2 X Hose Clamps
  • LP Gas cylinder NOT included.
  • Excludes pressure indicator gauge as shown in the assembly video on YouTube.
