The Damsel couldn’t help watching this video when she saw the title. This is about a guy who makes knives and other things the old school way.  Sound interesting? Check it…

  • This was really inspiring to watch…LOVE it! Off to go check out his Etsy shop…thanks for posting!

  • My boys would be in heaven :).

  • I really wish I had the talent to do things like this, although, I would probably choose to make violins or something along the music lines. We have someone in our family who makes knives. My brothers all have some and I guess he is pretty well known. I think it is a great art!

      It would be fantastic to know how to make a violin…or a knife.

  • I love your tips on air fresheners and egg freshness! I will come back for more! I love these kinds of tips!

  • By the way I found you through Blog Frog!

  • My daughter would love this -sending her the link –

  • That was really interesting. I think what i loved most was their lifestyle. The older I get the more I feel like escaping the city life and raising my girls in a peaceful place.

      I feel exactly the same way! I really wanna head for the hills.

    Luckily we're already way out in the country! One of our multigenerational family members is actually going to blacksmith school so he can be our old school toolmaker/farrier. Ahhhhhh I love your blog!

      I'm so glad you like it! Come back soon.

  • Going to be married in November. Have to cross the pond for it from Germany to Florida. Enjoyed reading your advice and couldnt agree more. I gonna fight naked 😉 I have quoted you at our blog. I hope I remember half of the advice in due time 😉

  • You amaze me with all the features you find. My daughter just said, "Are you ever going to make a knife?" and I said "no." Then she said, "why are you watching this? You are just wasting time," And I thought about her watching a zombie movie on Saturday night, I didn't say anything because I'm nice that way but if she starts to stager or get green I'm out of here.

      teehee! If you only knew how to make your own knives, you could protect yourself against zombies. Just sayin.
