  • I'm glad he is doing projects like this again. I think he's been growing so much so fast, which is great, but it's worn down some of his skill sets. Lovely to see him getting back to basics.

  • I absolutely love you channel and love lurning about this craft that seems to be just a part of my soul, but they'res something i would like to ask you and that is for a video dedicated to safety. I was smithing a few knifes and using a belt sandder and got all sorts of iron dust all over myself and up my nose and it was just a big mess, then noticed you use a mask when you sand and i know it seems like common sense but theres so much that just gets over looked in life and one day i could just be the worst thing that gets overlooked so please 🙏 share with us your safty tips

  • I thought the tapered ends were supposed to connect at first. Apparently they don’t traditionally, but that could be an interesting new design for them. It would provide counter-tension when cutting, allowing for more careful cuts. If the scissors are made to be closed at rest, then the metal will work on your side for the actual cutting of material, possibly granting a lot more force

  • Quick question idk anything about this i just like what he does and what's the difference between forging and melting metal and poring it in a shape

    AKERAKERMåned siden
    • @Duane Grabert yes but is there a difference in strength or something

      AKERAKERMåned siden
    • Forging is heating metal to a malleable state and shaping it to your needs. Melting metal and pouring it into a mold is called casting.
