What do I make? LOTS of Damascus steel, knives, swords, axes and more and of course, I always love hearing your suggestions for future projects in the comments below!

  • Some of your viewers may wonder why there are only 3 legs, when they think it should have 4. They may not realize that 3 legs makes it less likely to wobble.

  • Hi Alec, amazing content and thank you for the dedication throughout this period. I want to get my father a gift, and remembered that you mentioned a sort of “reference work” for smithing and engineering with information on stuff such as tensile strengths of steed etc. Could you tell me what that book is called? Thanks in advance and with the warmest regards, Tim

  • Hey Alec, I love the channel. I was wondering if you have ever thought about doing Forged in Fire? You seem like you are exceptionally skilled at forging blades. From what I have seen on your NOtown channel you seem like you could definitely win forged in fire. I think it would be awesome to see you compete on that show. I know it would be a great challenge for you and would love to see how you would do. Also it would be nice to see what Jay Nelson a Master Bladsmith would say about your work.

Get a hold of Windy hill foundry, I’m sure they can help, best part they have a crusher that will eat the remains so you can cast with original iron! Best of luck man, I felt the pain as it hit the pavement!
