    How hot do your coals get? I'm asking because I want to make a Katana and I need to know how hot the steel needs to be to lose its strength so I can fold and hammer it 1000 times...

    Yea, but about how hot will that be?

    I mean... even jet fuel can't soften steel when it burns, so how on earth can coals?

    You see, they never made swords int he 1700s! It's a conspiracy!

    I think it's been proven now that it's impossible to make a sword.

    Hmmm.

    HowStuffWorks "How Sword Making Works"

    Uh oh. I thought steel didn't lose it's strength until 2700F?!?!? How can steel be malleable at temps of 1200F and 1500F?!?!?!?!?

    9/11 inside job??? Yoohoo???? Got an answer genius?

    Wait. Let me guess. Sword makers were in on 9/11 way back when right?

    :lol:

    Nice point JBeukema.

    :clap2:
