Introduction

I'm going to show you how you can forge blades using scrap metal, which you can probably find from a lot of different sources.

The one thing that you should pay attention to is the characteristics of scrap metal. Today, you can come into possession of high-quality carbon scrap steels and other alloys that the bladesmiths of long ago could have only dreamt of.

Notice the fact that I said ‘carbon scrap steels’. You see, the main ingredient in steel is iron. However, the higher the carbon content, the better the metal will harden. If you find scrap made of stainless steel, then you may not be able to forge your blade readily. That is why, when looking for scrap, you should look for those that harden after processes such as heating or quenching.

But hardening is not the only thing you should be looking for when you are choosing your scrap. You should also pay attention to the type of steel that you are using. We will first start with some of the commonly used types of steel and which steel you should avoid.

Of course, we are going to delve into various scrap metals that you can use for forging as well, later on in the book.

On that note, welcome to the world of scrap bladesmithing!
