Not really wanted to be too serious here, I do hafta say using coal, coke, or charcoal is like deciding on which welding process to use. Maybe it could also be compared to using a carburizing flame or an oxidizing flame.
Even good ole coal contains varying amounts of mosture, sulfur and other thing that can affect the forging process. Hence, some coal is unsuitable for blacksmithing.
