    I thought all blacksmiths had Popeye forearms.

    It must be the woodworker side of him that keeps the forearms slim? lol

    Man that's some incredible work, wish I had the time to figure out that whole blacksmith thing, and be like 1/10th as good as him

    Society of today does not appreciate the craftsman. It's cheaper from China.

    Not a bad price for that type of craftsmanship.

    To be honest I would be scared to do anything but keep a knife like oiled. That's the type of thing that becomes handed down in families. Of course if you actually go to their website, you can't order anything because they are flooded with orders. Little wonder that, the promotion those videos is causing has to be insane.
