I could tell you,
but then I'd have to kill you.
No,just joking.
You have to see a blacksmith in action using a TRIP HAMMER to work red hot steel...
then you'd know. there must be a You Tube Video of a trip hammer being used...or there should be.

Haha, nah, you wouldn't kill me. :D
But what's a trip hammer? I guess I'll have to go look for that, because that's some amazing work.

Oh, I see now, it looks like an air hammer.

Some are mechanical, and the newer ones run on air, true...

Yeah, I personally don't like the use of air hammers, or these trip hammers, for forging swords. The way I see it, if I'm going to use heavy machinery or large tools, then I'll go with stock removal, because using technology like that in forging just seems to take so much away from it. Forging is much older and has a lot more tradition in it. I'd rather not ruin it with too much technology.

No no,don't think that way,
Even the best Japanese sword makers use trip hammers.
You can control the compression of the molecules much better with that machine.
You should see it in action before you judge it so harshly.
TRUST me,I'm a purist more than most. The TRip hammer is your friend...
