THIS PROFESSIONAL QUALITY DVD TRULY ILLUSTRATES THE “NO-B.S.” SCHOOL OF BLADESMITHING.
Thirty-five years of knife making knowledge locked inside this digitally filmed, educational, how-to DVD!
Charles not only teaches you how to make this bowie, he shares with you valuable tips and secrets he has gathered over his long career as a bladesmith. His intention in making this DVD was not to give the viewers simply a recipe for making a particular knife, but to help them understand and put to use certain basic principles of the art of bladesmithing. And this DVD has certainly met those expectations.
The film and sound quality of this DVD are also excellent.
When you receive this video don’t neglect to remove the paper cover and notes. It opens into an 8 page booklet with Charles’ reflections on knifemaking which you’ll want to read.
One hour and 55 minutes of great instruction from a Master Bladesmith.
