Deadliest Warrior on SpikeTV down here. My little guy and I liked that but FiF even more.
There's a lot that I really like about the show- in addition to repeatedly having Ray on!
Or you could get one that is already made.... https://store.multitool.org/departments/raker-knives-and-steel-mini-panabas-knife-225.htmlDef
Yeah, hand crafted stuff isn't cheap, but it sure is nice! Def
If you make it on the show, I guarantee we will make it a HUGE event here!Def
I failed to get a screen shot but David Baker looked to be wearing a Leatherman Tread bracelet in the last episode.
I enjoy seeing all the young blade smiths competing or trying to make a name. Been fun watching the show grow and the camaraderie of the smiths.
I enjoy, so does my wife, at least she seems to as she does not pick at it when I watch the DVR copy.Tonight's episode is to start a 20 competitor invitational, I believe for 5 episodes for a purse of $50,000 to final winner. Not certain the format for eliminating smiths but sure it will be interesting.The show has evolved, beyond the hammering and sharpening, to the smiths need ing to understand the metals they are working, and welding metals together. Brains as well brawn with talent.
Just started season 2... fun so far. What concerns me is that Weapon == hacking tool for them. The judges even mock contestants for adding cross-guard (which is what makes it a weapon IMO). Oh and Doug Marcaida has to work on his cutting technique, especially with longer blades, its not called draw-cut for no reason. But overall I'm impressed by the judges, they do a really good job with quality/functionality over looks (I once watched a model-casting show and they sent a contestant home in the 5th round, because she was too short... what did they expect, that she would grow???).And what some cook up in 3h / 5days wowzzeeeeee
DM took a lot of flack for some of the tests, but I think 99% of us couldn't do better.
I'm itching to do the FIF Youtube 3-hour challenge, hopefully I can give it a try in December.The more seasons, the more episodes....the better my chances of winning $10000! And to put that into perspective....that how much my car cost that I'm paying off over 5 years.....
