  1. I probably am confusing them. I just started making knives a bit more seriously only a couple months ago, and I've learned quite a bit, but there is still SOOOO much that I still need to learn. What I did is I basically just got the plate red- cherry - hot, and I let it cool down normally. How would I "anneal" my plate of steel? Sorry! I'll put my location on.
  2. Well I live Indonesia. But I'm from America. We run a touring business here in Indonesia called Wild Sumatra Tours. The spring steel I am using is from a big truck. Here are some pics :
  3. P.S. : I forgot to add this but if you can normalize spring steel, but it has to be normalized differently from mild steel, how would you normalize it?
  4. So I've already made a post about using spring steel for a makeshift anvil and welding spring steel. I got a lot of support and help! But I was wondering about heat treating spring steel. So I've heard from a couple different knife makers that spring steel is a pretty good material to make knives out of, but spring steel is already hardened (at least the spring steel I have). So I have a couple of questions: - If your making a knife out of spring steel that is hard enough to dull a drill bit but soft enough to have a file just barely dig into it, does it need to be hardened further?
  5. Thanks for all the support! I will look into it!
  6. So basically, I am just beginning blacksmithing and I am making a makeshift anvil. I really don't have enough money to buy a real anvil but I'm trying to make one. I have a big truck spring steel leaf (I don't really know what a thing of spring steel is called. What I'm saying is I have a big thing of thick spring steel). I am going to use it to make the top of a striking anvil, but the steel is a bit small on the width. I want it to have more surface area so I can have a more enjoyable time forging. What I want to do is have a shop weld two plates for me (I don't have a welder) so I can use i
