40-45cm at a guess, that would be my Kukris.

I do heat up the steel to take the bend out of the leaf spring and to put the Kukri bend in, but I do not count these as forged blades.

A buddy can teach me the basics of MIG and TIG, the rest I'm sure I can figure out

I might have a slight crush on J. Neilson... I love his smile when he destroys blades >:D
But he is also very knowledgeable and love his work (not his prices though :o)

Just went thru J Neilson website.  He has some really nice pieces.  Most if not all are well out of my price range but not all are exorbitantly priced.  He is a Master Blade Smith so price does reflect his skill set.

I like his minimalist hatchets... really nice pieces.
The prices are too high for me, but especially with the attention he got with FiF, he probably sells well.

But he is my favorite judge.

Did you notice, that the Dagger from the Dagger episode (where they had to make a dagger in the first 2 rounds) was made by him? Makes me wonder how many of those pieces they show were made by one of them.

I've always thought the final example of what the smiths were to make was made by either him or Dave.

Or Ben/Jason.

Ok, I'm watching the latest episode (Blacksmith round) and first "What is Wil wearing"... followed with "Are those horses on Daves tie?" But most of all Tony... Was a landscaper for many years but had to stop because of a back injury... so he became a blacksmith :think:

Hahaha.  Yeah I was thinking the same about the back injury thing. 

Will is an interesting fellow.  I know men, some men are wearing their clothes fitted but it all looks very uncomfortable for me. 

I didn't notice Dave's tie.

Been wonder about that for years.....came to the conclusion only non-fat people can get away with that.  :cheers:

I can't sit down or hardly move at all without my shirt coming out.....

Some, good information here... but terrible video, why reset if you are not going to cut the video? Why did it take 45 minutes?

Dare I dream?  :think: Wil FiF just carry on ad infinitum?  :cheers:

it used to be on quite sporadically very late at night on TV here (in Spain) but more recently it seems like at least a couple episodes a day in the early evening, I have tried to catch a few more episodes when possible.

That's only feasible....and not always enjoyable.....on Youtube

What gets me a bit is the small interview inserts.  In some cases it's obvious the footage was recorded before or after the show, but there have been cases that made me suspect the "3 hour forging time" might contain some time-outs......?  :facepalm:

I suspect there are breaks, much like in other shows like My Kitchen Rules where they are cooking under a 90min time limit, and you only see them hustling away the whole time, and suddenly they have a finger or three wrapped in blue tape from having cut themselves.

I was chosen to compete back in February, Last step was getting a medical clearance from my DR. He said no way.  :rant:  :dunno: I really wanted to give it a try, but he figured I would be one of the ones taken out on a stretcher.  :facepalm:  :oops:

Any chance at getting clearance to do it at a later date?  I guess if the Doc says "no way" then  :dunno:.  Bummer to hear as I'm sure it was for you too.

Aloha, there is no later date for me. I've got nothing that will improve, just waiting!

Watched S05E39 last night!  :like:

Thanks to some facebook posts I suspect there's an episode where the judges made knives.......but whatever, the more the better!  :cheers:

This episode taught the value of humility Mr "Arms of Steel"  :rofl:

It now seems to be on pretty much daily here, with a good rotation, I haven't seen too many repeated episodes even though they seem to do 3 in a row (I tend to only catch 2 of them, and not daily)

I assumed you were referring to season 5.......noticed yesterday season 6 is up to episode 3 already  :cheers:

The show must be really popular if they're churning them out like this  :woohoo:
