Investment/lost wax casting with 1045 carbon steel.
Investment casting (also known as lost-wax casting in the art world), is the oldest known metal-forming technique. The key benefits are versatility, accuracy, repeatability, and integrity, and the wax can be reused. It is more expensive than other casting methods; however, it can incorporate intricate contours and the end components are near perfect, so they require little or no rework once cast.
