Are there any compilers that can compile forth for bare metal? I know there are operating systems which are written in forth, but it looks like most of them roll their own forth interpreter to use as the system itself. Is there a standalone compiler which can create a kernel without having to recreate my own forth implementation?

Hey, I have done that once! (: Although as you said, it was just a simple interpreted implementation...

Sadly though, as far as I know, from the very small amount of existing forth compilers, none is able to be easily used properly for osdev, so I would recommend just going with a simple forth compiler, as it shouldn't be that hard to do.
