Jeremy hosts the popular Simple Little Life channel on YouTube from his homestead in Alberta.

Bob Rankin is a very talented knife maker and maker of damascus steel. While he doesn’t really consider himself a blacksmith, his curiousity for forge welding led him to build his own forge and forging press. I first met Bob via one of my viewer’s knives segments on YouTube and since that time it has been amazing to see his skill progress as a knife maker and one who makes amazing damacus steel.
