Crafting requires a certain amount of dedication and persistence and the guy in the Tatara Project had more than enough of both to pull off a very tough project. He set out to make blades out of homemade steel and the result is simply outstanding. He started off by building and running a tatara-like smelter where he consolidated five pounds of steel. He then processed the bloom and compacted it forming a bar of steel. He sorted the steel using the spark test and a flywheel press to flatten some of the chunks. He then manipulated the carbon content of the steel to create different quality bars of steel. He finished up by forge-welding and folding the different steel bars to create a billet which he forged into a sunobe and then into a blade. The final step in this tedious project was polishing the blades. The impressive final product will blow your mind.
