    One of Sheffield's last forgers

    Great vid showing one of Sheffield's last forgers demonstrating his craft. He mentions making 2 gross blades a day, and every hit with the hammer does exactly what he wants, I could watch it for hours

    That was a nice find. I like the Canadian skinning knife he showed, I haven't seen something like that before.

    Very nice. Great to watch his coordination. Also interesting to see how comfortable he is giving commentary while working in his workshop, compared to how he is a bit awkward on the pier. You can see what he's good at and where he's spent time in his life.
