parsha Posted September 19, 2018 Share Posted September 19, 2018 Hi Folks, I came across some leftover stainless steel tubing. 304 or 316 can't say for sure. It's pretty thick walled almost 5 mm. The outer diameter of the tube is 1 inch and lengths vary from 4 to 6 inches. I am thinking will it be possible to insert a high carbon core rod which fits tightly in the tubing, flatten the heck out of it in the forge and then cut it all the way in the center of the flattened billet to get 2 flat billets to turn into knives. Just a thought, dunno if it is doable??? My current setup is highly inadequate so I can't try this at the moment. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
