I Forge Iron

forge welding a throwing knife


Recommended Posts

Today I broke a BLUE ANGEL throwing knife when I threw it and it hit another of the same knives. My question is: can I forge weld this back together? It is made of A-1088 stainless, and apparently was handcrafted in China. My dad (a tool and die maker) said that it appears to have been heat-treated incorrectly (not far off from my guess of a stress point) and he also said that I wouldnt be able to weld it back.

It all comes down to it not doing any good broken, and one never knows if I might get lucky.

(also, if you are curious about the stupid rainbow finish, I got a set of 12 plus a knife roll for 40 bucks. beggers cant be choosers)
