    I’d really like to try this stuff but I don’t have a whole lot of money or time for classes or anything. But, I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I’m thinking I could probably do some basic stuff just going for it and trying and if it doesn’t work trying again in my spare time. That could work, right? (Don’t really know who I’m asking, but I guess it doesn’t matter)

    You could coat it with shellac. It's used a lot in jewelry with metals that tarnish the skin (like brass, bronze, copper), it's very resistant.
    It would change the finishing, but clean fingers and shiny rings go well with each other ;)

    4:00 Second video I have seen from you and now I noticed your hands. You have been Blacksmithing a LOT. In the other you said something like that you had a showcase when you were 13 so it makes sense.
    Try climbing, the finger muscles are very needed there! (Thought I would have to have a careful look at your arm to see how your muscles are doing.)

    I am currently studying in Jewelry in Montréal ! I once tried to forge a little leaf like you showed us with a silver bar, but ended up completely destroying the piece. I have to say, silver is not an easy material to forge. do you have any tips or suggestions ? and what about gold ? ( don't have any myself, too expensive)

    Love your channel Alec! I've only been watching for a couple of weeks, but I am becoming inspired to make a small home forge for myself to start off with! You forge a lot of cool things while also explaining everything quite well. I know you're always asking for the next idea so I have one for you! The Catspaw Dagger from Game of Thrones is absolutely crazy and think you could do a great job making one!

    With all the offcuts of Damascus steel, you should totally make a viking bearded axe, also called a Skeggox, and try and have one pattern for the blade, another for the main body of the axe head, perhaps another pattern where it fixes to the handle too.
    Or just a big mix-up of all the different patters you have laying aroung.
    It would be really awesome to see all the different patterns you have made all combined into one item

    QUICK TIP, with your acid etching on damascus steel, after you pull it out of the acid bath don't put it straight into the neutralizing bath because it can put splotches on the steel. wash it with water first, then do it and it can make the pattern far more clear.
