Forging a Leaf

Nathan has just uploaded what I think will go down in history as the best tutorial on forging a leaf. 

Aside from fantastic videography, this video takes the time to really explain what you do and the all important WHY you do it. When you watch #blacksmiths forging leaves, you'll often hear them warn about working too cold or having that dreaded snap as their leaf just falls off the parent bar after all that work. Lord knows I've lost a bunch of leaves!

Nathan explains why that happens and how to avoid it. And he turns out a leaf that is about as beautiful as you could ask for.

If you're not subscribed to Working with Iron, I highly recommend it. Nathan produces some of the best videos out there and is a genuinely good person!
