I've made about a thousand iron daggers in Skyrim, if that counts.

But will you post photos of your works?

Six years and we finally have a user who blacksmiths in a Medieval-themed community. It's a sign!

What you do is you take a picture of your works with a camera that can link to your computer, you upload them to your computer, THEN you upload them to a Photobucket or Imageshack account. This is so your pictures can be read in a PNG, JPG, or BMP format. Then you post the link here and we all get to see what you made!

Personally, I've never forged a weapon of steel before. But I do have to say, Blacksmithing interests me! I know how to blacksmith, I studied it for a while, I just don't have the resources (iron ore, anvils, etc etc). One day I will attempt to make a sword, but for now, I need funds for that.

My dream is to forge a Zweihänder sword out of crucible steel. I've developed a recipe designed to remove 98% of slag from the steel, I just haven't put this recipe to the test yet. I'd also like to experiment with daggers and such, see where that goes. Over all, I love blacksmithing.

Iron is cheap, a forge can be easily made, and most of all the biggest resource I would say is time and effort. Relatively speaking iron is one of the cheapest and most common materials around, scrap yards tend to price the stuff really low

Anyways I would like to see your workshop :D dunno I just read a few books on it and watched some youtube videos lol

@Minotaur55 that great that you’re interested! I have one word of advice though, before you try to make a sword or dagger you must get some experience under your belt! You really need to have all the basic before you try anything (hammer control, how to tend a fire ect) it takes most people about 15-25 times before they can make a good nail!
Here are some great websites to look at and find some info on getting a forge and anvil

@light I will not make any promises about a knife because it takes a lot of time and I already said I would give 3-4 knifes to people. I’m not saying no though.

I’m working on a knife for myself and a railroad spike tomahawk at the moment, I will post them when there done.
