Blacksmith Releases Fascinating Video Documenting How He Forges Fireplace Tongs

By: | June 29th, 2015

Watching a blacksmith who is marvelous at his craft work with his hands and make things in an old-fashioned way is quite fascinating.

Torbjörn Åhman, known for releasing a whole slew of interesting videos on his YouTube Channel, recently uploaded a 17-minute video documenting himself forging tongs.

The crazy colors hot metals produce, accompanied by the clanging of the metal and simply watching how difficult it is to make some items we take for granted makes for a great mini-doc of sorts.

I for one respect the hell out of my fireplace tongs now. Those things have been through some serious forging!
