Get a soup can... The longer the better. Get something to make a rectangular die that will be roughly the size of the blades you are making and wrap it in tape and then foil. Put a hole in the center of the bottom of the can that is roughly the size of your torch nozzle. Place your die into the can so the hole is plugged. Make some mud, or if you have access to clay (the kind you fire in a kiln) even better. Pack the space in the can with your mud/clay and let it settle. Use a torch to speed it up. When dry... give it 2 days, use the torch to burn out the die. This should leave you with a channel to put your blade into. The purpose of this forge is to insulate you blade from the cooler outside air allowing the steel to get to non magnetic temp (red to yellow hot).

Ha your fly is down.
So after i make this I can stick some raw steel in there? I know I sound stupid but what is the next step with the steel? Do you know how to make a mold for bullets?
