Video: Knifemaker Stuart Smith takes ABS Journeyman test

This is not exactly a fast-paced video, but it is neat to see a smith realizing a dream.  This video is of South African knifemaker Stuart Smith taking his Journeyman performance test with Master Smith Lin Rhea. If you want to fast forward to the cringeworthy part, the bend test, jump to 7:30.

Another Journeyman Smith, Steve Grosvenor, detailed his experience in a TTAK guest post in 2015.

There are a couple of other testing videos, and many other neat videos besides, on the ABS YouTube Page. Check it out if you are so inclined.

    I cringe whenever I watch them bending the blades! Met Stuart at Blade Show he’s a good guy well deserved.
