That was a very interesting video. I wonder how well a bronze knife will take an edge and hold it. You have inspired me to try this. ATB.

Fascinating. Glad there’s people doing this. Great video.

If I understood correctly, we have a group trying to recapture the skills in a few years, that took hundreds of years driven by necessity. Worthwhile? Definitely! The way humanity is going, we will soon need all the help we can get.
