In the past I have done a couple educational live shop broadcasts where I set up a webcam in my shop and allowed people from across the world watch me work, answered questions, and provided instruction on my processes. Its been awhile since I've done a broadcast due to time constraints and the availabilty of a computer to take into the shop, however I have finally figured out a way to post the recorded versions of those videos here on my website.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be in a bladesmith's shop and actually see how things are done, this is about the closest you can get without actually being there. Enjoy.
Each video is 1 hour long, so there is a great deal of footage and information packed in here. Bear with the camera work, its not too easy to try to film yourself live, forge a blade, explain what you are doing, and field questions all at the same time.

I hope to do some future live broadcasts, however it is too hard to speculate when.
