Thanks for sharing that Jeremy. He does a good job of explaining what he's doing.

Having forged two blades, and one from mild steel at that, I'm impressed with how quick he works. Both mine took me hours longer. In particular I really struggles with forging in the bevels...but I like how he forged them in steep and then went back and worked the ridgeline. I think that's smart.

One of the hardest parts for me too was though that as you get it to shape, and it gets thinner in parts, the heat really goes away more quickly and you have less time to work.

At any rate, I really hope to be able to have a forge some day. It would be a lot of fun.
