I Forge Iron



Recommended Posts

I am totally new to the art of bladesmithing will someone please tell me the "steps" for making a blade. I have already started on a piece of metal and I would like to know what to do before I ruin a good piece of re-bar.

Don't worry Chris, you aren't going to ruin a piece of rebar, it'll be good for some basic forge practice. It isn't good for a knife so get some practice out of it.

Check out the "Lessons in blacksmithing, getting started and blue prints" sections of the site for good getting started info.

Bladesmithing is a specialized branch of blacksmithing and you'll need to know how to do basic forging and do it reasonably well before starting in on blades.
