Nolan Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 (edited) So I've got a fairly good-looking leaf spring that I plan on making two knives out of. When I set out to cut the thing with a hacksaw, I became afraid that I'd damage the saw because it was so stinkin' hard. So I come to a question: Will I be able to forge it without annealing first, or do I need to? If I need to anneal, what would be the best way (air-cool/sand-cool, how many times, etc.)? Thanks Edited July 11, 2012 by Nolan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
