I made a modified kora sword, which has a flat tip. I made it out of a double headed nail, I only used a blowtorch, file, and a hammer.

since they have very little carbon in them would it be best to quench in water. or will oil be fine?

You could make a bunch and give them all ninja masks to have a secret stealthy hamster army!

Mine looks better than yours

I made a gip by using a double headed nail, and I made a more interesting grip by entwining it with aluminum wire. :)

this could make good potential Blow Dart ammunition, if you add some feathers or something of the sort
