How Blacksmiths make Swords & Survival Knives in Thailand

A sword and knife factory making quality Thai blades! Welcome to Baan Kam Dang Village in Lampang City, Thailand. This is the home of some of Thailand’s most dedicated blacksmiths. Every year at this blacksmith factory they pump out hundreds of survival knives, machetes and swords. Samurai swords can be made to order 0:24. We have had the opportunity to test the large survival knife that we purchased at a recent campsite in Australia, it is a very effective batoning tool 🙂 Expect to see some bush cooking videos where we’ll be using this knife.
