In Survival DVD Volume 10 you will see how we used the information in this DVD to construct this wilderness forge!
Steel yourself because in this volume of the Woodsmaster...
Ron and Karen Hood take you to Arizona to meet two of the leading knife makers in the Neo-Tribal Metalsmiths.
Tai Goo and Tim Lively reveal the secrets of materials selection, forge building, tools, techniques and tempering so you can make your own terrific tools or blades at home or in the field. Why buy expensive knives when you can make your own...from JUNK?
Once you’ve seen these techniques you will have the knowledge to make metal tools in the field. Find a horseshoe, build a primitive forge and a fire. Then, with a rock or a hard stick, you can heat and pound that piece of rusted junk into a usable and effective tool or weapon.
You will learn that you don’t need electricity, power tools or boat loads of money to make beautiful, functional and durable knives or other metal pieces. You will see that you can build a forge in your own back yard and you don’t need Arnie’s arms to hammer hot steel. It’s all in the technique…
1 hour and 45 minutes of amazing material that will give you even more skills to help you along on the road to self-sufficiency.
Don't miss it!

Believe it or not, I was so impressed with this series of videos that it was one of the reasons I started CampingSurvival.com. Being a former Marine and outdoors enthusiast, I greatly appreciate the excellent job Ron and Karen Hood do of sharing their vast knowledge of camping and survival skills. However, despite all that they teach in every video, I still find them to be very entertaining as well. These videos are so enjoyable that they make me long for Spring even before winter has started! Buy one and I guarantee you'll want to buy them all!
