    He's talking about custom orders in kydex holsters, but the discussion on when to take a custom order vs when to educate the customer on his bad choices applies

    I thought this was a neat vid that some of you may also find interesting. It shows how different rasps are forged and made by hand :)

    A pretty cool Damascus sword. Music is a bit much though.


    Here's a really cool sword video featuring Kevin Cashen.

    Since I've started into titanium framelocks and linerlocks, I've been searching for good info on various subjects. Here's two videos I found very helpful.

    John Grimsmo on carbidizing lock faces.


    This guy goes by M0DiFiDEZ and he has a lot of good info on anodizing. He's definitely a little dry and slow getting to the point but, the information is gold!

    This is an interview of Master Smith, Jerry Fisk on Forge welding,
    It's in a Pilot put together by Jesse James of West coast choppers that is now making some cool looking 1911's with Damascus slides. There are also some great wood working tips by a master furniture maker.

    This is not an endorsement of Jesse James, his show nor is it a discussion about his private life what you think of him or his motorcycles, prices etc


    So if you have comments regarding the process of learning forge welding, 1911 pistols or wood working your comments are welcome.

    If you are bored and just want to trash someone or something that you can't afford, kindly refrain from posting here!

    Thank you and enjoy this informative video on Forge Welding and wood working.

    This is a video I made. This was the first knife I made and MOST of the information I used came from this site. After completing the knife I intended to do a full destructive test just to see how it went. The knife held up so well I called it good and quit early. Still have the blade in my camping gear today. I'm hoping this will add to the information base

    I'm really grateful for all the info, I thought this would be an appropriate place to share back to the community. Feel free to move/delete if not appropriate.

    I forgot about this thread. Here is a short 3 part series I made discussing my experiences with developing hammer technique.

    Love the vids Rick! I also love your post anvil. I'm looking to buy one of the 4x4x4" stake anvils from Old World Anvils and was wondering if you had any suggestions as to whether I should put it in a stump as they suggest on their site, or if I should put in in a tube filled with cement like you did. I am trying to make it as quite as possible because I live in a neighbor hood where the hourses are pretty dang close together, so just wodering if you had any thought on that?

    Also, I think I remember reading somewhere a while ago that you post anvil is quite a bit taller than 4", do you think the stake would work as well as yours if set up the same way? Also, you by any chance know where I might be able to pick up one the size you got from, if there is a good difference in performance and "noise" level as well? Sorry, maybe I should start a new thread but well see how deep this goes first ;) Thanks man :)

    btw- I just bought a batch of that DHIII W2 in 7/8ths inch so I am wanting to upgrade from the setup I have. I have forged out 7 bars of wrought iron in 7/8ths before (yes I know there is a big difference between that and W2) as well as a long bolt I found along the railroad in pretty much the same diameter, which was pretty damn tough, but I was able to pull it off.. which is my point. I figured I might need to type that as a disclamer so people don't think I'm cookoo lol

    Cool video, Dave. I took part in a traditional smelt in Michigan. Kevin Cashen's "Iron Age Challenge". Definitely not an easy skill. Louie is so smooth.

    I like the history channel clip when the host says that the "samurai swordmakers" perfected the science of combining carbon and iron... then secret became lost. Ha! I love the mystique, intrigue, controversy and drama they always seem to wiggle in there. Gotta get the ratings.

    @rick..yeah, the fact level is low on that piece..."don't believe the hype", but i am glad more people have the opportunity to hear about Louie and his work...
