John Neeman is a company that makes hand forged woodworking tools and knives. I stumbled across one of their videos awhile back and was in awe and inspired.
There is something to be said about a man made tool. The time, the effort, the skill, the love, its all very inspiring. I love working with my hands, the joy I get from it, its indescribable. I love going in my garage, listening to some music and making something with my hands. I would rather make something with my hands, than go out and buy it.
I don’t know much about blacksmithing, but someday I would love to learn. There is so much skill involved, its amazing. From working with the fire, knowing how hot to get the metal, to shaping a piece of metal with another piece of metal. So much skill, it’s a beautiful thing.
If you have some time, watch these three videos. I hope they inspire you to go out and make something with your hands.
