Over the last few years I have really been interested in learning more on the science and craftsmanship behind forged steel and blacksmithing. Our logo of the wrench knife was created by a local blacksmith as a gift and that set the ball in motion to learn more about this ancient craft. One area that I have been particularly paying attention to is custom swords and knives as the amount of craftsmanship to create such a type of blade can be done in many stages, such as with a Japanese sword or a bit quicker of a process with railroad spike knives.
Below is a cool video on how one guy is creating knives in a back yard forge and getting quite the results. If you want to know more about the science of metalurgy and sword making, check out a post we did a while back.
