    CedarSlayer's Tools
    Another interesting steel can be found in bed frames. This steel is often a nightmare to work as it can work harden and become harder than the drill you are using. To work it, go very slow, and keep it as cool as you can when working or you can ruin good tools. The interesting thing about this steel is that it is really tough and resilient, but with traditional blacksmithing methods of being pounded into shape and quenched it can make outstanding knives and tools. Since it comes in an angle form, it has often been use to make a quick and easy corner chisel.
