Basic Blacksmithing Techniques is a continuation of the Blacksmithing series, building upon Intro to Blacksmithing with Dave Canterbury. In this video, Dave shows you how to take your new blacksmithing skills and hone them by making a squirrel cooker, fire steel, and finally a draw shave. Each project increases in complexity and introduces additional techniques to learn with Dave taking you step by step from the raw materials to the finished product.. Dave Canterbury is an experienced & skilled survivalist, having years of experience in bush crafting, outdoor self-reliance and primitive skills. He founded The Pathfinder School because of his dedication to passing on the “tribal knowledge” of outdoor self-reliance and primitive skills to anyone and everyone who wants to learn. If you’ve been bit by the Blacksmithing bug, now you can start making tools you can use or give to family and friends.
