    Loved this video concept and execution from Will! Super entertaining and a great knife. Anyone got any tips for him on the Chilli though? :D

      Add corn and less than a teaspoon of brown sugar per batch to help with the acidity of the tomatoes. Helps those with heartburn problems.

      I missed this 4 days ago, but man, that was cool. Great production, Will. As for making chilli? Well, I'm 56 and have been making different styles of chilli for near 40 years of that. From my experience, people learn the basics of a chilli stew and modify and expand that to suit their individual tastes. That's the beauty of chilli stew. It becomes your own but will still be a proper chilli. I like to make mine with a lot of minced beef and pieces that I dice from a piece of Chuck steak. Plus all the other good stuff and my spice preferences.
      Next episode, Alec making a long 'Pig Sticker' versus a whole spit roast pig. You may have to make a spit roaster from a split 44 gallon drum and a power source from a windscreen wiper motor and some clever gearing.

      Just wanted to throw an idea of a video out there for you both. I have been in the Army for 19 years and the one thing you see in the Army, everyone has a knife. The problem is that everyone has a different opinion about what the perfect knife is to carry. Most people have folders, OTF’s, or fixed blades but no one agrees about what’s the best. I will say that I am partial to a fixed blade with a molded sheath. Some carry in their pocket, some with a clip, some without, and some wear them on their belts. I think it would be cool if you guys actually competed to build what you think would be the best knife for military personnel. Just an idea! I have seen thousands of Soldiers with knives and know hundreds personally that carry them. Interested to hear your thoughts, or you can point me to a video if this is something you have already done. Thanks.

                So if a blacksmith makes $20 per hour and say the apportioned overhead is 3x labor you made an $640 knife to breakeven.

                  What do yalls do with the little chips of metal that fall off during the forging, ever thought of doing something stupid like melting it down?

                      Great video Will! I think you beat the chili and the knife is beautiful.
                      I'll ignore your comment about Montana being the best ;) but the Bowie knife is named after Jim Bowie and it is pronounced Boo-ee.



                      I like the idea below about doing a brisket next. That sounds like a lot of fun!

                          Pretty bold to claim Montana to be the best of the states... lucky the Texas flag didn't jump off the wall and strangle you on the spot for the insult.

                                Should have quenched the blade in the chili... Then he could have taken an hour of the crock cause that would cook some of it. LoL

                                  Fun video guys! Nothing wrong with that chili either. If you like what you made then its a success in my books. I've also fallen in love with that style handle as well, it looks awesome.

                                  I wonder if you gave that to Jason Knight or J Neilson, or even Ben Abbott and had them beat the tar out of it, would it break or would it survive? Those guys are absolutely brutal on the knives they are presented on the show.

                                                                                  I don't know anything about blacksmith things, but have you ever thought of heating your anvil? While you hammer the metal the anvil acts like a huge heat sink, so by heating it up the metal would cool slowly and you would lose less time waiting for the piece to heat up inside the forge.
                                                                                  Hoping to have given you an interesting idea,
