Arctic Fire 2016 Videos

Recommended Posts

At long last . . .

Here are the AF 2016 demo videos.

Huge thanks to Michael Bergstrom of WildDog Creative who volunteered all the labor, equipment, and massive editing it took to put these together! Michael's a member of the forum and is making some pretty nice swords of his own lately.

Enjoy guys!

Dave

Awesome, guys!  I've only watched Petr carving antler so far, but I'll catch them all.  Dave, do you mind if I pin this and put it in the Video and Multimedia forum?

It was my joy to help out! Learned a lot and made me up my game. Thanks for watching everyone! I'm planning on having some of the story elements, a video about the giants sword and some lovely video of the finished works uploaded soon.

Both of the pattern welding demonstrations were superb. Owen's use of plasticine for pattern development was extraordinary. Dave's Practical demo of forge welding was also extremely well done. BTW @Dave Stephens it was not even close to being a "Yawn". It is always, and I mean always, beneficial to watch another smith work. Regardless of how many times I do this, there is always another way to get something accomplished and watching you work was entertaining and educational as well.

Excellent presentation gents.

These videos made down-time due to inner ear infection (not a bad one) very productive, thanks!

There is also a new video by Peter Johnsson coming (currently on his Youtube channel) about the hoard and its history. I watched it a few days and it was fascinating.

Storytelling at its best.
