Tackling a new challenge

I like to think outside the box. So when one person approached me recently and asked what he thought was a silly question, i saw it as a challenge. There's nothing a good blacksmith can't do. It's just finding a safe and workable way to do it.

I was tasked with finding a way I'd creating a permanent set of wrist cuffs and ankle shackles. 

This may sound simple but when the request is to be done with a single bar of thick steel with no hinges many people would say it's not possible.
