      I'm going to defend my horrific tool techniques. I am not at all offended by the comments and I think a lot of them are pretty funny, but I think it might be worth mentioning why I made certain choices. For the file, it was mostly because bismuth is really soft (softer than aluminum) and it has a low melting point. So, as you file it, it gets even softer. I'm not exactly sure what happens, but it looks the file just starts cutting grooves instead of cutting anything off. I edited it out, but I did initially try filing it the same way I would steel/aluminum and it just didn't work. It's why the video immediately cuts to me moving the file around aimlessly and saying it's hopeless. It seemed to work best when I used the rasp which cut very deep grooves (the first file I used was pretty close to useless), pushed hard and constantly changed directions. I also got super tired doing this and I got super sloppy in general. I am not claiming at all that it was the best way to do it, but bismuth is different from other metals and you can't file it the same way as you would steel/aluminum. I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried filing bismuth before. For the knife, I just overestimated how sharp it was for the first cut. After failing, I thought it would be fun to use it more like a cleaver. I am nowhere near a master at using a knife, but I can assure anyone who is worried that I know how to cut food. Also, I should add that part of the fun of this video was trying to emulate Kiwami's method (which added a lot to the struggle). If the point of this was to do it most efficiently, I would've just molded it and used a belt sander or something.

        Nile, I thought that people who experiment are organised. How come you ard throwing that poor car off the table?

      2. janetweed

        That knife is thiccc

      3. Chris Nitro

        He should make another long comment explaining why this comment is so long

      4. FLASH TCC

        the sand block soaks up water to sharpen knives it takes a lot of technique to do it I would say look a tutorial and practice it

      5. ragnorock cookie

        Also you need to be patient when making swords or knives those things take forever so you got to be at least astonished that people still make this things rather than automating it. And it shows you a true attachment to locksmiths and how much worth they do when making swords and knives

      As a machinist and metalworker it was quite hilarious to see you struggle working with the material :)

      I saw lab coats and expected smart people. But they are such dudebros who are actually dumb dumbs. And it was fantastic content omg.

      So Nile Blue is just Nile Red on a shitposting spree?

      Liking the new background picture on Blue channel, how I only noticed it now? Those figurines are so cute! Thumbs up for whoever made them :)

      Safety is the number one priority in the lab

    26. NerdyPi

      Pretty sure that the big stone with grooves is for flattening the other stones. Also props on the 1.596 guess. I'm going to assume that was a legit guess and I think it's cool when that stuff happens because it can be surprising how accurate you can be when you measure things a ton.

      Nileblue: If you made a deeper reservoir for the crystals to have space to grow, you would have had a way better result. Try again I believe in you!

      my son use to go out in the back yard and hammer nails and use a hand held knife sharpener and make tiny knives in the spring and summer

      I think my new band is gonna be called slag fork, thanks for the inspiration

    30. evanfmc

      this video itself is an injustice 🤣

    31. Miss Informed

      As a chemist you do everything in a fumehood, you get that, but you never got the idea to wear respiratory protection while sawing and grinding down the blade and creating dust?

    32. Secret Shark

      So the science man hit that rock and then just didn't apologise Wow What a mean science man

    33. Ricky Norris

      hes super smart but has no common sense

    34. Baer pong

      11:20 ofcourse it is hopeless, you are only using 15% of the file :P

    35. João Pedro

      Holly shit that's a thick knife LoL great video dude

    36. Azalea Shir

      forged in fire :'D

    41. Kipter 1999

      The reason it probably took so long is because files only cut in one direction and it isn't the direction you were using it.

    43. the_internet_

      First, cool video and great job.... but one piece of critique... When you were 12 did you juggle knives with the blade sheath off? I mean that is fairly irresponsible, tons of kids watch your channel. Please don't do that again.

    44. Abraham Lee

      couldve put a paper sheet under it when he hammered the brick, so that he could collect more dusts

      Why do I feel like all 4.3K dislikes are either knife aficionados or people horrified at the literal playing with knives?

    48. Daniel Johnson

      You need to sharpen it down some more and risk the brittle.

      Ok so... I can do the knife making, if I had any bismuth I'd try this for myself and see if it really is that bad or if it actually works when the knife itself is properly crafted
