    How much time do you think he spent on just moving, positioning, and using the camera. Maybe that is where those extra minutes went.

    Well Alec, due to catastrophic failiur we have to ask you to leave forge, and Ben is going to tell you why
    As you can see Alec. Your blade passed the sharpness test, you have a well balanced knife and a beuatifull structure to it. But in the strenght test on the 3432 hit your blade showed weakness right here ( Shows the crack ). And thats why we want you to surrender your blade and leave the forge. You are not the forged in Fire champion

  • James Watts

    It was certainly still hard so it must have been a stress fracture in the blade that caused it to break. Doesn't look too grainy at all so it's still got a decent carbon content in it and it's still very sharp. Your blade will cut.

    The guys on the show also don't mess around with the breathing respirator. And a lot of the guys just drill out their guards. Had you of cut them factors out you probably would have made it with time to spare. Other then that and the failure.... It was still a awesome job.

    you see the brown red spots on the brake? thats from a crack that was formed before the quench, and had then rusted, thats probably why it broke in that particular spot

    in the first episode, you can see where it was going to snap while you were "normalizing". you can see the weak point heat up faster than the rest of the blade.

    Fantastic video! Learned a ton about steel properties from you and I am very grateful.
    But watching this one I came to wonder... is there a way one could repair this broken dagger?
    I believe this would be a very interesting challenge trying assembling back a broken knife or even a sword..
    Wouldn't you agree ?

  • Patrick Fouse
    Patrick Fouse 2 months ago

    To be fair, you were also carrying around a camera, and explaining what you were doing, during the 3 hours, I'm not sure it would have cut a significant amount of time, but just over all you were doing more than most people doing this challenge would have to

    Too much of a gap from the blade to the guard it's just an extra stress point Bowie knifes don't have that gap and the ones that do are much much thicker

    I knew you will fail.
    You want everything to be perfect and that's just not gonna cut it(see what i did there).
    If you have a time limit, especially if you have a short time limit, you need to focus solely on the blade. That's probably why they use plastic and cords and whatnot for handles and some other random crap for guards.
    But damn, both videos were amazing to watch
