If they have moisture, they can crumble or break when heated. Btdt

They're massive and cold until you expend a lot of energy to heat them.

Only a small part of a forge gets hot enough for trouble, and that's easy enough to insulate against, but heating a bunch of bricks is a problem if you're going to harden only one item.

A quick blanket type forge pretty much heats while you're getting your stuff together.

I did learn that the torch igniter won't stand the heat, so small manual ignition torches are so good idea.
