Husband very pleased with his gift.
Great book if your after new techniques you hadn t even thought of Good book for the advanced smith who want to know than punching bending twisting and grinding, look for the cheaper books as some of the prices listed are steep It s as it says advanced Not a good book for beginners but great for existing blade makers and associated trades.
Un excellent livre sur les techniques propres aux travail chaud des m taux pour la fabrication d p es m di vales Tr s satisfait
Great book for intermediate bladesmith.
I highly recommand all books written by Jim HrisoulasAs the title says, gets deeper into heat treating and studying steel.
good book repeats some info from his beginners book, that s fine, which makes it a stand alone manual informative and easy to understand I recommend it It s not really for the beginner though.
Unfortunately, this book is not worth the money at least not the Kindle version Very short, and mostly outdated All the information in this book can be found for free on the Google or the Youtube It reveals no secrets The physical book may be better, but the Kindle version is a major disappointment Would not recommend,
