Quote from: Icarus on October 13, 2017, 02:25:18 AMThere is an intrigueing program on TV that has blacksmiths competing with one another for making cutting tools...mostly things like swords, machetes, cleavers and what all. It is actually an international competition that includes smithys from over the globe. I find the program fascinating because there are still old world craftsmen, and a few women, who can forge and finish some exceptional cutting instruments.
