My name is Alec Steele and I am a 22 year old blacksmith from England, now living in Montana in the USA! With a great team of hardworking folks, we upload videos showcasing the projects we get up to here at the workshop. Lots of sparks, lots of making, lots of fantastic-ness. Great to have you here following along!

  • 8:18 dude, I can't tell you how much I love that you show your mistakes. I've learned SO MUCH MORE by watching your channel than I have from any other smith on youtube, specifically because you show the issues you've had, and how you've fixed them. Shows like Forged in Fire may show you the breaks and bends, but they never go into detail about WHY the swords failed. Seriously, keep being awesome!

  • I've been following you sense four months before you left Barker st, but today I'm unsubscribing and I wanted to tell you why. You use to teach us your craft, how to make a fuller, how to taper, heat treating, annealing, coffee etching, acid etching, sending techniques, you're even showing us how to MIG and TIG weld. But now I just watch you produce stuff and fast forward through all the good parts. I used to come to channel to learn how to forge, now It's just watching somebody make sparks. I know that format is not everybody's cup of tea but that is why I came, and since I no longer learn anything here I have to move on. I do wish you and yours the best of everything! Never stop doing what you love.

  • 16th century craftsmen were able to create that work of art with the more difficult wrought iron material, hand made hand tools, and basic equipment. Yet you struggle and give up right away with the steel while using incredible power tools. The talents of our past are lost forever, never to be seen again. Noone can replicate traditional quality in any trade. Truly is sad.

  • cant watch that handle any more your a black smith heat it up and use a round chizle for the eyes make one for the shape of the scale and pound them in like you did with the solder you made before stop useing the ball burr use the hammer and chizle for the small work... burr is only for hogging out stuff not for detail like your doing...

  • It's crazy to think that there are historic artifacts that are similar or more detailed that were created with far less to virtually no technology by today's standards. The blacksmiths of yesteryear possessed knowledge that was lost to the mass production age and its awesome to see someone in my generation doing those ancient geniuses justice

  • A nice inlay between the dragon snakes with a soft steel or a easy to corrode metal, a few minutes in acid and it would give the idea of full separation between them. Could try this in some other piece of metal, but I've seen it done somewhere and it looked very nice, amazing to give depth
