Three Good Youtube Vids

This video I found a while back, it gave me a good insight on stock removal knife making. Specifically, it supplied most of my knowledge on fixing handles on full-tang knives. 

This one is on Damascus steel making. Cable works for pattern welding because it is made of twisted steel of different carbon contents, so hard and soft steel get mixed. For a high-quality knife however, steel with higher quality than cable can be obtained pretty cheaply, but this shows the process quite well.

This one is not very detailed, long, or “professional”, but this is quite a lot of help, especially with the “pinching” and the drawing out of the tang. It shows the general process, so I have something as a guideline when forging in the garage.
