That is for sure. I would surely like to have one of those. When You can shave with one of those, that is a craftsman in the truest sense!

What a fascinating video Ken, what skill both the blacksmiths and house-builder have. I'll lay bets that those hand made axes sell for rather more than the ten to twenty dollars that the mass produced Chinese ones cost over here. Rather like the Japanese chefs knives that cost three to five hundred dollars here (each).
