Introduction: Nail Sword

About: I am 14 years old and I live in Waco Texas,I like making things out of wood and fixing things!and nature photography!and like the out doors I also love fishing, I love bass fishing!

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

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

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
