Probably you don’t do this at home. Since forging steel requires quite a bit of equipment. For thousands of years it’s been made, beginning with the crucible process.
Even today, there’s nothing casual about making steel. If you think the process is easy, I’ve got two words for you: blast furnace.
Yet all that work proves worthwhile. Because there is nothing else quite like steel. Probably it’s the most important material in the world for engineering and construction, due to its exceptional strength and durability.
