ou don't have to be a certified master bladesmith working with highly refined steel to craft a quality knife suitable for self-defense or general utility. All you need are a few simple tools, some time, and metals anyone can scrounge from garage sales, building sites, or even the local dump. Survival authority, artisan, and neo-tribal weapons expert Jason Hawk has been forging greatly sought-after blades for years out of both high-quality steel and found materials, and in this video he teaches you how easy, inexpensive, and fun it is to forge weapons that will last a lifetime. He begins by showing you how to make your own forge and anvil out of a few cheap items, and then goes into testing found steel to see if it can be worked with. From there, he teaches basic hammering, shaping, and heat-treating to guarantee that your finished products will hold up under the wear and tear of real use. Focusing on two projects, a knife and an axe/adze, this video will give you not only vital survival skills, but also the knowledge and confidence to make your own weapons and tools no matter how primitive your surroundings are.
