They work great, can't feel a thing when I punch the tree. Very comfortable.

The Chicago police department said the best way to defend yourself from a violent attacker is to vomit on yourself. I think flinging poo could work a little better. But NOTHING beats flinging LEAD!

Did not heat treat them, I guess I could use a blow torch but they seem to be fine the way they are. Not so much for cutting so a razor sharp edge isn't a must.

Thanks, Forged in fire is one of my favorite shows. Wish I could forge some steel, but impossible so just have to buy flat metal stock and do stock removal.

Someone on MDS a while ago talked about some place in PA I think where you spend a couple days to learn how to forge your own blade and actually complete one. He gave the info on the school/ forge. As well as others. IIRC

You only need to harden the edge and tip.

Nice, thanks! Sucks with limited space, no way could I have a forge.
Here's another I finished....
