That is an interesting series. Years ago I tried to make a knife out of an old flat file following directions out of some magazine but I didn't have the right tools to do it then.
Thanks for sharing it.

That guy has got it. I'm not really even into knives or even cooking, but after seeing that I kind of want to get some of those knives.

Awesome video. I really like how he pointed out the need to master a craft BEFORE you can create art. Like you have to put you time and dues in before you can move forward in that world. Tattooing really is one of the last artistry disciplines where you have to do an apprenticeship before you can even start in the field. And I believe it makes for a better product in any instance. People who want it bad enough stick around to cut their teeth on the skill of the masters before them. Robots don't know any better.

it is interesting to listen to someone who has ben "educated" discover work. I have bumped into those folks over the years. The reactions are not always the same, but there is an "ah haw" sort of moment. I am as fasinated by colonial American history as hot rods, and back in the good old days (they wern't) the apperntice worke from 5 - 7 years before becomming a journyman. Inderesting word, on your way to becomming a master? In Jewish history a man was not considered complete untill he was educated (bookish) and had a trade skill at which he could earn a living. Great ideas, lets get to work.

Off topic?

Not in the least. Art is art, be it pencil, paint, or hot metal.

I suddenly have a hankering for some seriously expensive cooking irons.

Having dabbled in knives I will have to say it is one of the hardest things I have ever attempted! Every flaw will show in the end. Shots of one of my primitives is on the Gear Journal. Looks like he uses the stock removal process which is what I have done in the past. His hand at sanding is REALLY good. Looking forward to doing some blacksmithing now that I have a forge. Neat video, VERY inspirational.

I love old hand made knives and that video was awesome! Id love to see some of his older hunting knives, but the kitchen stuff is just as cool!
This is my "barn find"! circa 1860, and still holds an incredible edge!
Thanks for posting, again, Ryan!
