Grade 8 bolts for punches or chisels?

#1

Hello I’m new to the site and have a question for all. I got a 8’’ grade 8 bolts and was wondering if I could make a punch or hot chisel from it. I’ve been researching the topic all day and couldn’t find anything but using them for knife making. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Grade 8 is some tough stuff, you should be able to make some useful tools out of it. Grade 8 is a medium carbon alloy steel.
