My name is Alec Steele and I am a 21 year old blacksmith from Norfolk in the United Kingdom, now living in Montana in the USA! I upload a vlog from my day at the workshop almost every single day. Lots of sparks, lots of making, lots of fantastic-ness. Great to have you here following along!
What do I make? LOTS of Damascus steel, knives, swords, axes and more and of course, I always love hearing your suggestions for future projects in the comments below!

So if you want to see lots of forging fun, blacksmithing badassery, cinematic hammering and more in my Daily Vlog - please subscribe here by hitting that red button!

Is this guy forging or flexing equipment at us? Kinda funny that he started with like 6 pounds of metal and ended up with that little knife.

because he's a robot designed ostensibly for combat, I figured that Johnny 5 would have come equipped with some sort of coaxial-mounted circular or reciprocating all-purpose cutting blade.

I hope to see some more "minimalist" blacksmithing soon. Lots of complex and expensive machines, out of reach for most of us. More machining than it is blacksmithing at this point.

Hi alec, you have changed my life, I had always wanted to do blacksmithing and now I have, last year, one of your videos made me make my forge, I have come quite far and made some cool things, it would mean lots to me if you go and see what I have made on my Instagram account I'm not asking for a follow but please respond asking for it if your interested, it would mean a lot to me ♥️♥️

Maybe try a bull nose end mill next time to put a small radius at the corner of the cut and reduce the likelihood of making a crack when you hammer it flat.

It's nice to see someone who truly loves what they do. However, being as I am someone who's never found that "one thing," which both pay's the bills and fulfills their desire for passion, I hope he (and people like him) realize just how lucky they truly are.

Most of us have passions which don't give financial compensation, leaving us in the awkward position of doing something "just to pay the bills."

And, eventually, most of us "bill-payer's" all wind-up stumbling through life in a kind-of lucid-daze. Everyday we endlessly press-on, our lives a bizarre cocktail of emptiness, boredom, and despair. At my last job, I'd find myself frequently thinking, "Man, If only I had cancer, at least I'd get some paid time-off." I was thinking that SINCERELY. That's how much I hated it. That's how much my job robbed me of my joy for life.

If anyone ever reads this, who is still young, I implore/BEG you... FIND YOUR PASSION. If you don't have one, go try as many things as you can. Even if you think you'll hate it, try it. Find ANYTHING, SOMETHING, that you have a passion for, and you can REALISTICALLY get paid to do. Otherwise, you might as well be a worker-zombie-drone for Halloween this year, because you'll NEVER have to take the costume off.

New idea for your next big project to test your precision making abilities. A pair of twin swords that fit together at the hilt to form one blade, with as close to zero tolerance as possible.

I’m really glad to see that you don’t want to risk removing all the skin from your ring finger. I have seen pictures many times of people loosing all the skin and muscles from wearing a metal ring in an industrial environment. It’s not funny and the people it happens to definitely don’t enjoy it. Thanks for being safe.

Alec, what kind of pattern would you get if you were to make a handful of different damascus billets - jelly roll, star pattern, and so on, then cut up those billets and make a whole new damascus billet out of chunks of other damascus?
