  1. I just wanted to to give a shout out to Burt Foster for his excellent videos. As I'm sure most know Burt is a Master Bladesmith with the ABS and makes amazing knives. Last month he started to make some videos and put them out for download on his web site burtfoster.com. I have a secondary job where we are encouraged to watch movies, (to keep us awake), so I'm always looking out for videos about forging and knife making. I also like to financially support makers for their sharing of information by purchasing their books and videos and through patreon. I have learned a lot from videos by J. Nei
  2. I really enjoy your youtube videos, you explain things very well, thanks.
  3. My wife would kill me if a made a knife that beautiful for someone else before her.
  4. I hear the music from The Spy who Shagged me playing in the background. Very nice.

  9. I was doing a viking ax last week and let the beard get away from me, I wish it looked this good.

  15. There are going to be some very lucky people in Arkansas. Such a beautiful collection. thanks for sharing.
  16. Punched it and then drifted it. I got lucky, but there were a few in the class that didn't and it was a lot of work to fix it. Started one the other day and not getting that lucky this time.
  17. Thanks, we just used a 2"x 5" x 3/4" and it was hard keeping the eye centered.
  18. Very nice, I took a Viking ax class in November and really impressed on me how much forge time it takes to make an ax with only hammer and anvil. What size was the starting stock for the Dane?
