  • How to forge a knife out of a file using my homemade anvil and forge. This is my first attempt at blacksmithing a knife and I had a lot of fun making this custom file knife. Please let me know what you think about my first forged knife that I have ever made. Thank you

    Couldn't stop watching the ants in the background and what makes them decide to go in that direction, then this?

    You need hotter steel, don't cold forge. It's way harder to move the steel and it leaves fractures in it.

    nice job, for the first it is a very good work.For my taste the curve of the blade would look better if it was less accentuated, but it was fine anyway. cheers

    Tip don't wait till its pink do it when it's burning red it will be softer last longer and have a more higher chance to be an accurate finish besides that great job

    Man, that’s beautiful brother. I really enjoyed watching you make it. I haven’t checked out all of your videos yet, just three so far 💪🏻⚒🔥 did you make the anvil yourself? How about the forge? I loved the ball-peen hammer axe and the brick masons hammer war axe great job

    Where did you find that big ass triangular file you used in the triangle dagger video? The biggest I’ve been able to find is a 3/8”
