From Dust to Edge: Making a blade from scratch

[update Jan 2018: Regrettably the content cited below is no longer available… ]

Jesus Hernandez makes a Japanese tanto (knife) from scratch, starting from ore, making a smelter, smelting, going to his smithy, forging, folding, etc.
His fascinating “From Dust to Edge” step-by-step tutorial illustrates all the steps involved, with lots of great photos of his process. Love the final part showing the Damascus-steel like patterning he acheived (‘hada’ is the Japanese term for this patterning, if I read him correctly.

Very cool read.
