Hey guys I've been working on this for a little and now I'm stumped for what I should do for the blade. I don't know if I should make a chopper, a slicer or a cutter. Any suggestions? Mind the unhammerd portion is going to be the blade not the filed portion.

I might be able to find some square stock or steel bars somewhere but I´m not sure.

I've hardened rebar in dirty motor oil by accident. Really hot bar, one flaming quench, and it was really hard to hammer on the next time (Yes, I had NO idea what I was doing).

Truth simply is. Whether you like that truth or not is totally irrelevant.

If there's a Fastenal or a screw and bolt supplier near you ask for water-hard drill rod, that's W-1 tool steel.

I found some O-1 at my local fastenal also.
