i can buy anealed flat stock of known blade steel for not too much, will have to be heat treated but a known quantity, or i can check at the salvage yard to see what can be found.

what do you guys think?
just my opinion but I would go with known steel other than just trying some unknown steel out.

I dont know jack about making knives but I love that show forged in fire. I also have a few hand made knives from guys that I paid a lot of money for, lol who knows I might be buying one from you next.

cant wait to see this good luck.

all of a sudden money is tighter than usual. i know steel is cheep but dang money is tight.

i would have to make a lot of knives before i would consider selling one, even if i was instantly good at it lol

forged in fire renewed my interest in knife making.

20 years ago i made an aluminum knife that was exactly the same dimensions as my police model spiderco. my friends and i were deep into knife fighting at that time. i even bought a cheap knock off endura for 2 bucks at the flea market and made an aluminum blade for it.

a friend of mine was making knives back then and we talked about it but he was trying to make a living at it and was not interested in teaching me. i havent talked to him in at least 18 yeaars. maybe he is not making knives anymore but still has the equipment. i need to look him up. he had a few bouts on espn iska in the 90s

RR tracks are made under much stricter regs than an anvil. they are made so thousands of tons of train can pass over them hundreds of thousands of times without fatigue. actually one of the best steels for an anvil you can get, just they only come in RR track size.

I have a project I will post up in a bit. I started it years ago and the blade is done but I still have not put the handle on. it is a full tang skinner for white tail. 440 HC steel which I bought. I cannot take credit for making it although I did work the angle of the blade and the polish job.

i think he was talkin about the blade steel. the RR track def works as an anvil. i have my new harbor freight anvil and my dads used one. i might walk the rails lookin for a piece to make a treadle hammer in the future.

Heres the thing about going to a salvage yard, you need to know your metals. I like to cruise craigslist or local facebook groups for old leaf springs. The leaf springs need to be older because of the carbon content. There are ways to test the steel once you got it like heat treating a small end of it and hitting it with a hammer. If it breaks, your good to go. I saw it done once but cant find the video. OR

Edit: forgot no outside links. On anvilfire dot com there is an article talking about junkyard metals.

i think links like that are ok but yeah, and the spark test, been reading on that. anyway, i dont know, buying blade steel that is already the thickness you need leads to cutting and grinding a blade all the time. that iss what im planning on for the first knife but later i want to be beating the hell out of salvaged steel.
