"How to forge a Colonial style knife" Video

Recommended Posts

This is the 3rd installment on the Colonial cooking utensil  trio which now will be a quattro since I'll be making a ladle as well as the holder..  So 4 pieces plus holder..  

This takes you from the rough stock, forged and then hand finished.. Sadly the camera died on me 2X, once when hardening and 2 when drilling the holes in the tang..  Not a great lose.. 

Making this did remind me of the reasons why I don't like to make videos of this kind of thing.. To much moving the cameras around vs just at the anvil as well as all the dead time.. 

Anyhow, it came out ok.. The video that is.. The knife I'm pretty happy with..First real knife in 20 years.
