I likes! The long blade with the short handle like that is really interesting. It's simple but badass!

There is infact a blacksmithing for dummies

but do u want a quick and dirty summery of a job like this one?

go to a dump, get a leaf spring (ones off old trucks are made from 5160 spring steel, the ally of choise for new smiths)

pound that sucker flat with a 5 pound sledge on a piece of wood, yes wood

draw shape, cut out with a hand grinder

done


yes i know i have bad grammer and spelling but im in a hurry, class starts soon

Ah, well good luck on that. I've already done a lot of reading, and I have two methods of making swords when I start. I seem to have a natural talent with metalwork. Then again, I'm good with my hands when I make anything as long as I have the right tools. Just have fun with it, take your time, and make sure you read up on the specific metals you use. If you want to learn some more information on specifics, try going here:

From there, pick a metal and look at the information they have on it.

Yeah, maybe. I wouldn't suggest quitting your job for it though, because you'll need to practice on your own for a while before you can start making them professionally, and that means you'll need to buy the materials you need. What I'm doing is starting it out as a hobby, and then I'll move it up to a side job after I get better.

Another thing you'll want to do, is learn how to make a good website to display and sell your work. That might mean taking some classes on web page design or something, if you haven't already. You'll want to do this because the chances of you selling your work are pretty slim if you have an unprofessional or amateur website. If it's neat and well-kept, then you should have a better success.
