Favorite YouTube smiths?

Recommended Posts

I did a quick search and didn't see this topic isolated into one thread, if it is and I missed it, my apologies.

So who do you guys and gals like most on YouTube? I enjoy Gary Huston very much, just everything about him and his work, the nonchalant way of going about things yet at the same time extremely well thought out in an instant... Brilliant. I've enjoyed some of Chandler Dickinson for the entertainment value and the "what on earth will he do next?" factor... Denis Frechette is another I enjoy, his "economy of motion" approach seems somewhat unorthodox but after I think about it, it's rather crafty and makes a lot of sense, just a very knowledgeable guy with an interesting twist on some stuff that seems to be status quo elsewhere.

Brian Brazeal, Mark Aspery, ABANA videos, Alec Steele along with others of Brian's students. Brent Bailey. Those are what I can think of offhand.

I've been watching dirty Smith lately. He's entertaining and gives some good info. And he seems like a nice enough fellow.

Yes, I forgot to mention Bailey, impressive to watch, that guy doesn't mess around! I've seen the name Alec Steele all over the place but haven't watched yet.

I'll definitely check out the others, thanks!

Tobbe malm is great. He does not do any tutorials that I've seen but if you want to get those creative juices flowing his videos are great.

Yes, the Frechette heat treating video is great. In fact, it was my inspiration for starting this thread.

Watched several Dirty Smith videos since the suggestions on this thread, can't believe I was missing these, they're great! I actually saw that episode of the Mike Rowe show a couple of weeks ago, didn't click right away.
