It dident cost much in money,the only thing i paid for was some gas for heating the steel and some discs for grinding and polishing.
But i spent 4 hours to make that bar of stainless steel into a crowbar looking thing...

Paint them red, give them white tips scratch it up, then seal it and you could sell it for $500.

There's a huge difference between making it look real and making it actually work. The material has to be made specificlly to withstand the high stress...
If you do it wrong it'll blow up in your face.

Yeah i know but that was the best i could do in my simple workshop with limitation on proper tools and stuff.
But one thing is clear,if im gonna make a new one it will be much better than this one.
I have never done any blacksmithing work befor,but i sure learned alot on this project...
So maybe someday i will do it again with better tools and skill biggrin.gif
