    Those first few knives made from re-purposed tools are freaking jackpot! I love when bladesmiths revel in the fact that they can smash a knife out of any good hunk of steel.

    A friend of mine's favorite thing is making the rail road spike knives. He's a back yard smith.

    Zapata was a village smithy before he went into that leader-of-a-revolution gig?
