Watch as steel cables are forged into a knife

Date:6 November 2017

The process of forging steel cables into a knife gruelling, but the result is worth it.

By Sophie Weiner

This silent video shows the long, gruelling process of turning thick steel cables into a sharp, beautifully crafted knife.

There are so many steps in this process. These include melting down and forging the steel to shaping the knife and sharpening it. Though it’s not entirely clear what each step accomplishes (there’s a lot of dipping the knife in unknown liquids) the proceedings are incredibly calming to watch.

We can only imagine that seeing the results at the end is almost as satisfying for us as it is for the guy who actually made it.

Take a look at the video above.
