    That's awesome dude. I made a thread the other day about how much I'm digging Forged In Fire. I'd love to start doing this but idk crap about working with metal. But one of these days i need to try my hand at it. I've always loved blades and collected them my whole life. It's gotta be awesome to make ur own. Plus i think I'd like the physicality of the work. It looks therapeutic. Like beating a punching bag. Except when ur done with that workout you'd have a sword or something. Lol

    You can make small and normal sized knives with just hand tools, and a small home made forge.

    Check out the Gough Jig. Its so easy to make and is a great help for making nice bevels with just a file. Takes a while though, and of course needs a lot of hand sanding to finish, but thats true of all knives.

    Its thicker and heavier than your standard machete. Made for pretty heavy chopping.

    Nothing, its a gift for a friend. I'm just a hobby maker, and I dont really want to sell my stuff. I wouldnt be able to charge a fair hourly rate to make it worth it for me, since I work slow as shit. I just make blades because I like to keep them, or I give them as gifts to close friends and family, like with this one.

    Cool, I'll give it a look. I'm dead serious about actually trying this one of these days. I would love to make a sword

    I'm in the process of making one. if you're into european swords, read/watch anything you can find by Peter Johnsson. He's the absolute authority when it comes to making historically correct swords.

    For chopping why not just use an ax?

    Its sad that nowadays knives and swords and stuff are mass produced in factories and sold for almost nothing. I see people at garage sales all the time trying to sell swords as vintage or antique. usually I just end up pointing to a piece of plastic on it and say "when do you think plastic was invented?" i miss when blacksmithing was an art.
