Learn the basics of tool smithing, the hardening and tempering process, whilst integrating the forging of the disciplines into a real world application. In doing so make your first four forged steel tools.
The advantage of making your own tools is knowing what steel they are made from. How to re-harden them when they get de-tempered, and even reshape them to the requirements of use brings you into a completely new world. Understanding your steel is probably one of the most important aspects of forging. Knowing how to anneal or de- temper, harden and temper steel makes the blacksmith the champion of his medium.
