Friday Film Fest: I don’t think that means what you think it does.

So I fell asleep on the couch last night and never got this put together. Apologies and here we go…

The lead video made the rounds this past week including a link on Drudge. I agree with one of the commentors on YouTube that this is a better example of precision robotic movement than true swordfighting, but it is cool nonetheless.

Below the jump we have a time lapse of forging a parang, building a campcraft chair with a CRKT Hoodwork, a really neat video on how to craft a wooden utility knife, and a news story from ABC News about a knife attack at the New London, CT submarine base.

If you all ever come across something that you think we should feature in a future Film Fest, please send it my way. ( Thanks.


I like the way he leaves the sound in the time lapse. The staccato sound of the hammer is really cool. I’d love to see a video completing the blade.

I am definitely going to recreate that in a future knife review. Stay tuned.

I like that. Some precision small-scale woodwork there.


Finally, I can’t believe I missed this one. Bonus story about everyone’s favorite knife-wielding psychopaths, Isis. Too bad it wasn’t interrupted by a Hellfire missile.


Have a great Sunday everyone.

    In that third video, I love that vice and combination sander. I like the Adirondack style chair in the first one too. I just might have to spend a little time on Youtube know. Thanks Clay.

    1. Thanks. These Film Fest posts don’t get a lot of feedback so I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

      I am never sure when it is outside and not original content how it is going to go over.

    That video of forging the parang is really freakin cool!!

    I was really hoping to see the finished product up close though at the end.
