    Safety squints are the most effective safety tool

  • SWONGS  (Dec 14, 2017))

    That was really interesting! Love to see more videos like this!

  • ChaoticEnigma  (Dec 26, 2017))

    I would recommend Alec Steele for good high energy blacksmithing videos, there's also Man At Arms REFORGED for high production videos about swords from movies anime and history and the like.

  • Heiryuu  (Dec 16, 2017))

    Matt Vu thanks

  • alyssa marie  (Dec 14, 2017))

    what a sexy knife

  • Captain Stan  (Feb 1, 2019))

    +Anson Hu Nah, the beauty of that knife is the different layers of hard steel and soft steel. It's the pure impurity that keeps that knife sharp and strong.

  • Anson Hu  (Sep 9, 2018))

    alyssa marie more beautiful than most ppl

  • Rang Klos  (Dec 14, 2017))

    now pickle that knife...

    Bobby Ricky can’t forget the crushed garlic

    "CRITICS SAY: 'NOT ALIVE'" laughed sooo muuuch!!

  • BlueTengu  (Dec 15, 2017))

    Pause the screen and read the article too. "No easter eggs here. Go outside. Live your life." LOL

  • Clint Cheng  (Dec 14, 2017))

    That paper test oh my god. I love the look on both of their faces. Kramer knew he would be blown away and you can tell it still made him happy to see another person enjoy his work

  • MrRobobear  (Dec 14, 2017))

    So I guess the "it" in It's Alive is just brad now. I'm fine with that.

  • Aidan Robertson  (Jul 6, 2018))

    Brad's Livin, baby

  • Jaiden Schmidt  (Jan 4, 2018))

    " brads alive" somehow after nOT WEARING EYE PROTECTION

  • Lisa Deyo  (Dec 15, 2017))

    "Don't ever change" is so true. I love Brad! I would legit watch a video of him just making an iceberg lettuce salad

  • Ruby Harris  (Jan 31, 2019))

    I would watch a video of him, no matter what. I have been saying 'don't ever change' about Brad since the dawn of time(i.e. a few months ago when I discovered this angel.)

  • mikkel thybo  (Sep 7, 2018))

    Making salad is basically just putting a seed into soil, water, wait, and then harvest. i dunno how that would make for a great episode but i want to see that too now that you've mentioned it!

  • Émilie Rémillard  (Dec 14, 2017))

    The way Brad used the knife to glide through that paper at the end: that is what I imagine heroin feels like.

  • Jay  (Jul 22, 2018))

    No but I've done every kind of heroin there is so I think I would know.
