Forging with stones I

You need tools to make tools. In this video, I try out the stone tools made in previous videos, to see how good they are at forging steel. I make a punch and a chisel, forge, grind and harden. The steel comes from an old agricultural harrow found in the forest and the forge blower is an off-grid BACHO forge from the Swedish army, probably from the 1950th or so.

I used a 360 degrees’ camera so… if you find yourself looking at something you don’t like, just turn around, by swiping or using the arrows on your upper left.

In part 2 I will forge a tongs using the stone tools and sticks. Please comment and subscribe.
