This is a 13 minute video from the 1980s how a Norwegian axe smith worked, refurbishing and making axe heads. I enjoyed watching it. Notably, the retired brother helps out and is just a great character. Also the smith uses a respiratory mask when grinding, which you don’t see often in older (and also current) videos. And finally the tempering technique using a hot piece of metal was noteworthy.
