The spade was rusted out. You're going to double the gauge trying to grind that shit out.
Hatchets are a dime a dozen, one of the few tools still made to an acceptable quality. Protip, if you can make it at your house with an oil drum forge and the oven in your kitchen, you aren't losing anything by turning one into a bottle opener.
The Kraueter wrench is a curio more than an everyday tool.
I will grant you that I didn't see the Stanley chisel the first time.
>>896450 Shouldn't be too much if you buy it at his workshop. No expensive materials, not that much work put into it. The most expensive part there is the metal plate, but because it has got the antique feel, it would be expensive as hell in a shop.
>>896508 Shit. Started by watching the last webm. That is a fuckload of wasted time and energy for that simple piece of crap knife. You can seriously just but a metal plate and do the same, without wasting the material.
see, i'm leaning the other side. if you want to impress or make one for yourself - why use powertools at all? it hits this weird spot inbetween - it's not industrial, nor actually hand-made. impressive and nice to watch nonetheless.
also, what is he starting out with? some kind of oxide? i'm surprised it compresses so well...
>>896466 >compete against the marked proper hand made knives are ridiculously expensive and people with too much money will buy them. I used to work as a carpenter for a guy who made hand made knives, and for a knife that took him like three weeks to make he made much more than I make in a month. and that's doing shit he loves
>>896804 nah, maybe the perspective makes it hard to judge, but i'm under the impression he starts out with more volume than he ends up with after hammering it into shape here >>896257. it seems like a huge brick of metal at first, compressing into a surprisingly slender bar. it seems like it getting longer doesn't account for all the volume, but maybe it's just me.
>>896450 > for a kitchen knife a damascus steel kitchen knife. and he didn't just bought a damascus steel bar and cut a knife in to it no. he welded himself the different steels and twisted it to create the patterns he wanted. then he shaped all that shit without having a single weld fucking up.
>>897381 Website says $790 USD for a Damascus chef, which is getting into the high end, but not out of line for most hand forged Damascus blades of that quality. I've seen plenty that go into the thousands of dollars. Some that are flashy with blade etchings, innovative metal patterns and forging processes, mammoth tooth handles, and others that are unassuming looking, but perfect examples of a master smith's work.
>>895877 The detail is split in half so you could see what's going on inside, then they just take an image whenever the flat face is visible and assemble it into a video. Which is pretty impressive, since it's definitely rotating at around 1500 rpm
>>896386 just so you know, it's a family business: William and Son. Now, we know that the concept of breeding is foreign to you, but the endgame here is that this craft will live a lot longer than you will.
>>906596 >It looks so good because it was shot with a $30,000+ camera No, any decent quality DSLR or high-end (large sensor) video camera could do just as well. The reason it looks so good is that the person operating the camera knew what they were doing. Incompetent hacks don't generally have access to $30,000 cameras, which gives beginners the impression that you need a $30k camera to do good work.
>>906798 Twisting red hot bar is relatively easy and you don't do it very often. Hand forging requires a lot of hammering (those videos cut out the boring parts). Power forging hammers can also apply a lot more force over a larger area than a hand hammer, so it would take even more hammering to do without power.
>>906955 No your[sic] retarded for failing to understand that resolution is not the sole determinant of quality. The fact that he shot it at 5.5k then downsampled to 4k then uploaded it to youtube is irrelevant because that's not what we're looking at and discussing here. The difference between 2048x1152 and 1920x1080 is trivial, and there are plenty of DSLRs capable of 1080p at 60fps, which would be adequate for a scene like that.
The key things that make this scene look good are solid composition, well executed lighting, good use of depth of field and subject isolation, a good color palette, good use of motion and time, and then technical image quality, in that order.
Let me guess, you're relatively new to production quality video and have spent a huge amount of time reading reviews and peeping pixels. Either you've convinced yourself that you need an extremely expensive camera in order to improve your work, or you've already bought an extremely expensive camera and are trying to rationalize your purchase.
But you know what? I really don't care. If you think you need a $30,000 camera to create a shot like that, go for it. You'll spend a bunch of money and then either get bored and give up, or eventually come full circle and understand how little the camera matters compared to the skill of the person behind it.
>>907044 No. There is a reason why film studios rent or buy $30,000-$100,000 cameras for their shoots: they provide better image quality.
>The key things that make this scene look good are solid composition, well executed lighting, good use of depth of field and subject isolation, a good color palette, good use of motion and time, and then technical image quality, in that order.
When I asked why it looked good, I was referring specifically to technical image quality. The texture on the guys shirt and face and the clarity of the sparks in every frame. You usually just cant see that shit, and that's what made those webms stand out. And now that we know it was filmed on a $30k camera, it's up to you to prove to the rest of us that a DSLR video could look just as good, because I certainly don't believe you.
>>907157 yeah, chalk is the only drawing utensil, if you will, that is washable, no matter in what fabric it is used on, there are washable markers but they arenst as good as chalk but you need them when working with leather and acrylic fabrics because the chalk wont adhere to them
Lets say you are some way smart engineer who builds a manufacturing process that makes knifes more efficiently. To do that you would have to familiarize yourself with blacksmithing. In some sense, the craft wont ever die, because people will always need to know how to do that. The only difference being that in the past people had to know how to make knives so that they could make knives, and in the future people will need to know how to make knives so they can build processes that do so.
>>907941 well, thats actually a tailor chalk, i do have 3 of those, they´re better than a piece of soap because the chalk could be sharper and more handlable than soap because it wont slip, also, the chalk gets into the fibers and stays there, also, it wont damage the fabric if the chalk gets dull as in the soap which could just smear all over the fibers and ruining the whole fabric
>>908305 literally proves nothing. "above 1080P" doesn't mean 1080P, and "high framerates" doesn't mean 30FPS. Those vids were taken at least at 90FPS, and they are also at 5.5K down to 4K. No matter how much I hate RED as a company, there's also no matching 16 stops of DR compared to Canon's crap of 12 at the most.
>>896489 >All of that shit... >...for a fucking kitchen knife A knife that will last you generations compared to your 20 dollar piece of shit from Walmart that won't cut a tomato after a few uses. It's damascus steel too, and I bet it only took a few hours for him to make it. If i had half his skill I'd be making my own tools.
>>906955 You shitting me? My GoPro 3 will do it, and those things are what, a couple hundred bucks now? Pretty much all of Sony's camera arsenal will shoot 4k, much of them at higher than 30fps, and usually for not much more than a thousand bucks.
And wrought iron isn't produced anymore anyways, so making it is reasonable if you need it for an artsy fartsy piece. I think some smiths have gotten into smelting their own blooms recently. Pretty cool stuff.
