New P.O Box address! Nicholas Tomihama P.O. Box 354 Camas, Wa, 98607 Hi, my name is Nick! I'm an avid archer and bowyer and absolutely love archery in all its forms. One of my dreams is to teach everyone the value of archery and the lessons that can be learned. It's a lofty goal, but I try my best in my own little way to make archery more accessible to people who may not have the resources or opportunities otherwise. While I don't sell any bows, I spend a lot of time teaching others to make their own archery equipment. I have a few books out on building bows as well as some videos on Youtube all about making your own bows and other archery tackle.

How to Make: WW1 SPIKED TRENCH CLUB (Easy+DANGEROUS)

My own spin on the Battlefield 1 trench club. I really like how they kept the club pretty small in the game for historical accuracy, would've been easy for them to make it into some hulking barbarian weapon, but they did well. Hope you guy like mine! Made of Ash wood, pipe fitting, and 12" spikes. Main song: Every Cloud - Rameses B Middle song/outtro: Where did I go? - Raybaboon

Hand Weapons of World War One: Knife, Club, & Spade

http://www.patreon.com/InRangeTV If you are interested in this subject, you should definitely go check out The Great War: https://youtu.be/HfKUd8bvQfc Today we are discussing some of the hand-to-hand melee arms of the First World War - specifically trench knives, trench clubs, and field spades. The up-close confined nature of trench warfare in WWI was not anticipated by its planners, and the infantry rifle/bayonet combination which had been developed for use on the open field was of little use in the trenches. In response, troops adapted a wide variety of improvised weapons that were more suitable. Some became issued formal items, and some remained ersatz and handmade...

How to Make a Chopping Knife From a 2 Dollar Farrier's Rasp with Minimal Power Tools - The Workhorse

Today we'll be making a heavy chopper from a farrier's rasp. I picked the rasp up for $2 at a garage sale and it was very dull, so I figured it would be great for making a knife. To keep up with the horse theme I'm also using horse stall mat for the handle, which provides a secure grip and helps reduce shock in the hand when chopping. Thanks for watching and enjoy!

Making a Trench Knife: The French Nail

How to make the World War I "French Nail" trench knife from rebar using a simple backyard forge. In the early stages of World War I the allied forces fighting in the trenches in France realized the need for a capable hand-to-hand combat weapon. Unfortunately they weren't issued one, so they quickly improvised a solution. The grandaddy of all trench knives--the "French Nail"--was born out of the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the common soldier fighting in the trenches. These crude knives were forged from a single rod of steel, forged into a blade at one end and bent around to...

Damascus from the cable, the entire process (Blade)

This is necessary for good welding (forging) steel. I sprinkle flux (90% borax + 5% quartz sand + 5% charcoal powder) this is necessary for forging (forge) welding.
