    I have a bunch of railroad spikes I would like to make into knives.

    Anvils are expensive :(

    Good coal is hard to find in small quantities, but it's really easy to forge things, as long as you have the correct tongs and safety equipment.

    I want to own a knife that I made from a piece of steel.
