Swords, Daggers, and Axes

Introduction: Swords, Daggers, and Axes

About: i'm a person who dosn't believe in "i can't". sometimes you just have to. and when you can't afford it, you just have to make it. needless to say i spend most of my money on tools of all sorts, and save anyth…

Here are just a few of the swords, daggers, and axes i've made over the years. i've always been fascinated by swords and blades of all types. when i was younger i wanted a sword and couldn't afford one so i guess my skills started out with a hacksaw and a file and a piece of steel i found laying around, and have been growing ever since. i'm still working on improving my skills, and would like to learn blacksmithing , and build my own forge one day.

    Thanks. Hey steel is steel, as far as making blades, it all starts with one project and you can build skills from there. and it can turn out as good as you want just takes time and patience

    I started out hammering nails flat and sharpening them with files, now I am all the way to making cutlasses with mower blades and grinders.

    They Look razor-sharp to me, and swords I make are razor sharp and they look duller than I don't know what. And you should give constructive critisism.

    It wouldn't be a whole lot different, aside from the fact that it would be alot stronger. i guess there would be some things i could do that are really difficult to do now. but yeah i'm in the planning stages of building a smaller furnace out of fire brick and an old water storage tank. just not sure if i want to use gas or coal. and people want more then i can afford at the moment for a decient anvil. Thanks for the support.

    Go to an old scrapyard and look around. Old anvils are everywhere, they're just hard to find. Also, you don't have to use an anvil, per se. My master has an anvil that is merely a length of railroad track secured to a stump. It just needs to be big and very very solid. Even a thick steel plate attached to a solid base would work. On another note, use a coal forge. While it is messier and slower than gas, it produces far better quality blades.
