    Nice find. Those guys sure knew it like an art form back then.

    The availability of the video seems to be sporadic. This time, I got no further than the thumbnail photo while searching the site:

    Thanks for sharing that link. Would be interesting to find one of those oldies and have a go with it. Also interesting to see how close the rapport is between the smith and the sledgehammer assistant. Also not difficult to appreciate that an axe head such as that could not realistically be retailed for $19.95 due to the inordinate amount of time and effort went into it.

    Assistant to smith: "nod your head when you're ready and I'll hit it"
