Introduction: Nail Sword

One night we had a hot fire decided to forge a mini nail sword

Step 1: Hammering

Get a hot fire and a nail at the time I didn't have a anvil but just get the nail flat

Step 2: Sanding

Get a file and and it till it's not any black spots on the blade both sides

Step 3:

Then use a finer file

Step 4: Sharpening

Step 5:

I also made a little stand out of some old balsa wood

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!

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
