Sustainability takes many forms—from shunning single-use plastic to repurposing waste steel, destined for landfills. Whichever path you take, the most important thing is to make life and the environment a better place in the process. We can draw inspiration from the Advoko Makes YouTube channel, which has all kinds of blacksmithing DIY projects that turn less-than-ideal material into works of art—including making a knife from a file and even a well-balanced bi-metal bearded axe.

Blacksmithing is an art that has been refined throughout the centuries. It’s through black smiths that some of the most world-changing tools came to be — from household items to weapons. But away from commercial metalworking, there’s a wealth of talent skill in hobbyist blacksmiths such as Max from Advoko Makes.

In this YouTube video, he takes viewers through the impressive process of making a two-handed chisel – forging a fully-functional and high-quality two-handed chisel from an old rusty leaf spring.

Also known as a ‘framing chisel”, the extra-large forged chisel is a handy tool for several reasons. As Max elaborates, the two-handed chisel is particularly applicable in situations when you need to be productive (work fast and efficiently) and precise. This includes shaving wood in spots that are hard to reach with a hand plane, spoke shave, or axe. Being two handed it also gives greater power, which can also yield greater carving control in the right hands.

If you know your way around metal works and welding, this is an interesting DIY project to undertake. So make sure to follow Max’s DIY adventures for more.


“Recycling is what we do when we’re out of options to avoid, repair, or reuse the product first. Firstly: Reduce. Don’t buy what we don’t need. Repair: Fix stuff that still has life in it. Reuse: Share. Then, only when you’ve exhausted those options, recycle.”
Annie Leonard, renowned proponent of sustainability
