Introduction: Iron Sword (Pictures Only)

Picture of Iron Sword (Pictures Only)

So I decide that I would like an actual metal sword, so I looked online an decided it would be more cost effective to make one.
So I grabbed a pipe of a good size and started hammering and after about three days I had a basic sword. I've done some more with it such as sharpen and burn (heat treatment fail) the blade so it has a more black/gray color and some of the wrapping has come off but otherwise it looks like the last picture.

I did not heat it at all, (apart from some minor heat from a bench grinder) and it was just a basic iron pipe that I found lying around.
