    In this 15 minute video, which takes place in Thailand, a master bladesmith makes a jungle knife from scrap in 1.5 hours.
    The way they use discarded items in all aspects of this is kind of innovative and kind of reminds me of how our own ancestors would have been inventive.
    This inventiveness is what helped make our own country become a power as it did.
    They say that necessity if the mother of invention.
    We need more innovation now a days!

    Looks like he was just banging on one that was nearly finished. Didn't see much innovation there, his setup is most common in this type of shop, he actually looks like he's got some nice commercially made hammers. Usually these guys are more inventive, bicycle parts recycled into a blower for the forge, anvils made from old munitions or sledge hammer heads or tractor parts, he's got a nice bit of round stock for an anvil and nice bick irons for doing the sockets.
