I’ve been wanting to show the fuigo in operation, but have yet to get a dark enough work space set up to judge metal temperature. How about some shou sugi-ban? Needs to be done outdoors anyway. The mass production way to use this technique is with a large propane torch, but there’s something special about a large hot chunk of metal. After shooting this video I used the last of the forge fuel in the fire-pot to cook a hot dog. Bon Appétit!
Did I mention that I can’t stand the sound of a shop-vac blower? This fuigo is bliss.
