I Forge Iron

Steel for an axe

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I was just curious about an idea I had, I have a piece of railroad track and i was just wondering if it would make a good axe head if i forgewelded a bit of high carbon steel for the blade edge. I'm just wondering because I planned on forging a few camp axes eventually. I'm not sure of the carbon content of the track yet because i havn't tested it yet. Also any suggestions on steels for an axe head would be appreciated, i was thinkin about 1050?
