        I have made thousands of iron daggers in Skyrim, so I consider myself a bit of an expert on these things, but this guy is pretty good too, I guess.

                          I would like to point out that, under UK law, cane swords cannot be carried or transported in public (it is arguable whether or not owning one is legal too). Unless you have a collector's license or plan to keep it in the same building as it was made, a cane sword is not the best idea.

                                                      Him: "This... is not enough material to forge a tang out of..."

                                                        Yea and typically the material that is being held to forge the blade isnt usable. Idky I just remember Alec talking about it.

                                                        My guess is that the big chunk at the end wasn't twisted enough or had cold shuts or cracks, so he really couldn't get a proper tang out of it

                                                      How do you know how much metal youll need to forge out the length? Do you knowingly add more than you need to shave it down to size or do you just wing it?
