My friend Chase Saxton and I are forging a Brian Brazeal style hot-cut hardy from 1.25 inch race car axle. It took us about 2 hours just guessing, but we goofed off a lot. An experienced striking team could do some serious work and forge one in just a few heats. Anyway, the rounded hardy is a bit different. It reduces the amount of surface area contact that the blade has with the metal and thus increases the speed of cutting.
Also the wedge shaped shaft allows it to stick in the hardy hole with much less energy being lost to tool vibration.
