There’s something to blacksmithing that caters to a chosen few. The joy of smelting metal and pounding it to shape is both art and skill combined. Some people take on blacksmithing as a hobby and some do it to earn a living. For some, it is both. Nevertheless, this skill takes time to develop but once you master it, blacksmithing can be really satisfying.
Nothing can replace that feeling of creating something using fire. For this DIY video, the author will show you how to forge a bearded axe. This tool can be useful during campouts when you need to gather wood for the fire.
