I love to see true craftsmanship. Lin your a true craftsman. I have got to get down to see you soon.  I would realy enjoy watching a master at work. I will give you a call next week.

We may just have to shoot a little too.

Ok Lin, real nice start, enjoyed it a lot. Now you need to finish the forging process so we can all see how you do it. It's almost like being 14 again and watching them National Geographic specials, you know the African ones. It was just getting interesting and then the crocodile eats the wildebeast.

Cant say enough good stuff about johnny and his forge. Having made a couple in Asia, a real time killer. I was way happy to have Johnny drop one off for me all ready to go. Just tonight I stuck it in the truck for the move to my new shop in the morning.

Anyone that has never had a chance to take a class with Lin or just get up next to the forge while he hammers is really missing out. He is a even better teacher than he is a maker and that's saying something.

Those are cool little forges!  Plus it is always a joy to watch a little forging.

I really enjoyed this video, as forging is something that has always interested me. Maybe someday I'll have the place where I can do it...

Love the video, thank you.
Does your friend make the forge and sell them? If so can he build them with double doors with both doors hinged?

Lin,

Awesome video especially for the person that has no idea of what goes into knife making. Can we have a handle making and knife finishing video now please? Thanks

Very cool video! Thank you for sharing that.  I can easily see myself getting into making knives at some point!
