Blacksmith Johan Johansen Demonstrates The Traditional Art Of Axe Making

Submitted by: Essen 1 week ago in Misc


Blacksmith Johan Johansen from Fagernes in Norway is forging a new carpenters axe from an old axe head. He is giving a second life to this old axe. It was a common practice in the old days to restore worn out axes by replacing the steel inlay so the blade is like new again. Norwegian, but with english subtitles.
