Episode 9 features a conversation with the wonderful Benton Frisse who participates in perhaps the coolest hobby we’ve talked about yet, being a blacksmith. Benton discusses using ancient and modern techniques alike to create knives, arrows, axes and many other tools that not only look awesome but can be used for difficult outdoor activities. We discuss how realistic the blacksmithing is in shows like “Game of Thrones” and games like “Skyrim”. Check out Benton’s work and learn how to build your own arsenal! http://hallironworks.blogspot.com/ Oh and random side note, we must have upset the podcast gods because there’s an echo during the intro however the rest of the actual interview sounds fine!
