Forging a Seax with Greg Rutherford

Recommended Posts

Here is some footage for Forged in Britain (a British ad-on to Forged in Fire) with Greg Rutherford  (who is an Olympic longJump Gold medalist )and myself forging a Seax. It was a great fun day and Greg is a lovely guy. He is really into his forged in fire! I have had a couple of professional sportspeople at the forge and its quite amazing how easily they can learn the physical aspects of forging...almost immediate accurate changed in his actions. I was very impressed.

That was an absolute pleasure to watch, Owen! It's pretty clear you both had a blast doing it, and I do love a good melon chop a much as the next guy ;)

I realize it was sort of brought about by FIF but I'd like to see a bit more of that type of "educational reality" programming on the U.S. side of the pond.
