That tapered piece would most deffinately need to be heat treated for strength, probably case hardened and made out of 4140. Some of that stuff gets pretty technical, especially threaded bolts that will have both side and lateral forces. For example the threads may need to be softer than the tapered portion so they can be torqued without snapping. Theres alot of engineering behind some of that stuff. Machining it is one thing, the heat treatment and material selection is what makes it or breaks it though. Literally.

Those knuckles are crazy. I can't wait to see those installed.
