      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 .

    Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) Sam

Mine has orange Alox scales which look fantastic and the whole package is nice and slim! :) And the saw is awesome for such a small thin price of metal. A couple of minor niggles are; its hard to open the blade as you have to get your nail...

    First of all I want to make it very clear that if you’re just starting out in blacksmithing you DO NOT NEED a “London Pattern anvil” to start hitting hot metal on. London pattern anvils are usually very expensive (your location in the world makes a big difference) not to mention relatively...

    Hammock / tree tent

    Thread Starter: mojofilter

    Seen something a few months back on face ache, was like a hammock but ratchet straps between 3 trees giving what looked like quite a stable platform. I now have bit of pine forest to develop, but it's quite thick no room for a tent on any ground that isn't soaking. Anyone got any ideas?
