I recently came into possession of a decent quantity of brass bullet casings of a few different sizes. I know brass isn't cheap, so I figured "gee, I wonder what I could make out of these in the forge?" Of course, brass isn't the easiest thing to work with, and from my 5 minutes of googling it's not an easy (or even safe, necessarily) thing to just melt down, especially bullet casing brass. So, any suggestions on what to do with it for knife use? Anyone done anything decorative with such things before? Is it easier to melt than I thought? Is this just a stupid idea and I should send
