      Great video and very inspiring. The only thing which prevents me trying is the lack of a forge!

      Check out the diy forge videos on youtube, easy enough to make something to heat treat blades.

      A really good video it inspires me to try making knives again just one thing though I don't want to sound like your nanny but please cover the point and cutting edge with a few layers of gaffer /masking tape when its left in the vice or on the bench it is so easy to rip yourself by accident. If you should go for something on the bench your hand is moving pretty fast and fingers up to forearms are vulnerable, I speak from experience .

    Thread Starter: Longstrider

    Hi guys, Having had a chat with Bardster I find that the only weekend in September that the farm would be available for us would be Sat 13 and Sun14th. I'm guess that arrival on the Friday would be OK too. Paul is too busy with a house move to do more than book a loo for us if we need it....
