Making a sword the poor man's way?

Any opinions on Forged swords vs Stock removal swords? I'm currently thinking about making a single edged viking sword or langsax/langseax out of 1075 bar stock. The durability and "battle readiness" of the sword should still be fine, right?

stock removal removes the risk of screwing up the steel under the hammer and only leaves you the chance to screw up the heat treat were as hammering gives you the chance to screw up both :unsure:
