So lately i have gotten an obsession with nordic gold which is an allou made with 89% copper, 5% aluminium, 5% zinc, and 1% tin. I have been wanting to make a blade with it, however since copper is so weak thats really a no go. Howevet however i have been reading up on copper alloys and i found about copper-beryllium which is supposedly very strong (beryllium being supposedly only 3% of said alloy) so i was curious, could i create a new alloy that is stronger by adding beryllium? Im well aware you cany just add stuff willy nilly, but could i add beryllium? What percentage could be used? Anyone knows, im not in a financial position to throw away metal willy nilly so i would appriciate some help
