Good to see folk making their own Paul, it really is not as hard as folk might imagine. What steel are you using?

i havent made these myself, i am still working on setting a forge up at home, the next time i get to have a go will be in a month or so, when i get in the old forge at rydale. a good friend has made these in return for a couple of nice pieces of treen, as far as i know the steel is en49 it is certainly hard, and is half inch bar.
