    for those asking.. the white powder is borax. a cleaning agent used to remove impurities from the fire and prevents oxidation

  • @reyanldodajosegarcia8035

    Just some pointers to think of... I think the white powder is a kind of flux that is used to bind all the drill pieces just like welding using a welding rod

    Yeah, I used to be really lax about safety glasses, sometimes I wore them, sometimes not. Then on one of the times I was wearing them I had a grinding wheel on an angle grinder blow up. A big chunk left a bloody grove up my left cheek and across the glasses. If I hadn't had them on I would have lost my left eye. I'm not lax anymore about wearing them. :-)

    For those still wondering, the reason why drill bits make such good knives is that they are not pure steel,but alloyed with vanadium and manganese, making them far more resilient. You will rarely find knives made with this alloy though, as it's harder to come by and real tough to work with.

    Spring steel is also another very good grade of steel. Shops that do spring work on older cars and trucks wiil sometimes even give away older broken springs. They usually break due to overloading, so the steel is still good. I worked in machine shops and the makeup of steel and hardness is extremely good. Flexible until you heat it, however, hardening the hot metal in oil will help. Water cooling/hardening will make the metal too brittle. Wear eye protection and stay safe. Good fabricating. If done right, it will be a knife you will depend on for many years. All the best and may God bless.

    Great way to repurpose something! I really like the simplicity and functionality of the finished knife and it looks like a great quality piece. Roughly how much time from start to finish did you have in it? Watching skilled tradesmen like yourself never gets old. Seeing everyone's individual style and skill typically brings something to my attention that I can incorporate into my own field of work and/or just typical day to day doings. Im turning 40 in January, I've had the opportunity to learn and do a vast amount of things in my life; blacksmithing & working a forge of any sort is one I haven't done yet. I hope to get the chance before it's all said and done.

    Nice Knife! I would have been interested in how he dealt with the delams we see when he first puts the billet on the anvil. By the time he is cutting it up to stack they seem to be gone. Trips back and forth to the forge are gone too, the only sign is the color changes in the billet, but that's ok. Watching some videos you would swear some folks never had a delam in their life. Nice to see a smith have issues and how they dealt with them.

    Awesome video and a joy to watch! It's like going to an old fair type setting and watching the blacksmith as he puts on a display of his skills. I think this skill, like others that have been passed down through family generations is becoming rare with the latest and greatest in technology. I would rather have something designed and hand made by a human than by a machine.

    great video. years ago someone made for me a knife out of industrial saw. My knife had a handle made of some nice tropical wood. That knife was unbelievable. It was so hard that i could hit a steel rod with my knife and make a dent in the rod and the knife still would stay razor sharp. I had it for years and never needed to sharp it.

    We too use to make them as the big workshop of our plant employed reciprocating saws that had perfect sized blades to make an impressive bowie or even a small machete if (luckily) broke down right at the lower clamp The true nightmare with these blades was to achieve a real sharpness, it took ages to finish them with oil stones because of the hardness of the metal

    I think that's because the initial firing of the drill bits would've removed any tempering, annealing or case-hardening that was originally done to the bits.

    Great project. Thanks for the detailed video. The one thing I would REALLY stress to you though is you should be using safety shields or spectacles, polycarbonate impact resistant, over your eyes when you're pounding metal on metal or grinding or basically doing any of the things you're doing in the video. I'm an Ophthalmologist and long ago lost count of the people who lost vision or lost their eyes from metal shards going in the eye, grinder wheels blowing up, etc., etc. Please protect yourself. You have wonderful talents, and one weird/bad thing happening to you could change your life. Thanks for your work, and please keep them coming.

    what are the advantages of moulding the steel on top of the wood and what is the white powder being sprinkled over the metal?

  • @jakepetty6809


    8 ай бұрын

    Id say forging on timber forces it together without warping the material too much and the white powder is borax it prevents oxidization. (In my totally unprofessional opinion)

  • @ErebosArt

    it may be borax. you use it to join elements easier. it slightly melts the metal making it easier to weld together by hammering.
