This is part 1 of a series of tutorials on how to forge a sword. I will cover the entire process from beginning to end. In this part I show you how to get started. We forge out the tang (handle) of the sword and we draw out the blade to make it longer without making it any wider.

About the Steel I use.
I am using 01 steel which is great for knives but is just ok for swords. If you have a choice of steels I recommend you go with 5160. You can also use the leaf spring from a car. Can get it at a junk yard. This is usually 5160.
