If you aren’t already familiar with Green Beetle, you’re in for a treat. While the Tulsa, Arizona-based hunting and sporting goods store offers up a fine selection of outdoor equipment, the real appeal of Green Beetle comes from its YouTube channel, where 125,000 subscribers eagerly await mind-blowing, knife-making tutorials, uploaded every few weeks, that “explore the science and art of bladesmithing.”
Yeah, crafting durable, functional blades from scalpels and birdshot is mighty cool, but nothing screams chest-beating, fist-pumping manliness like forging a knife in beer and bacon.
They call it the “Fast Food” knife:
The steel blade, made from wrought iron, carburized with Tums (you know, for the heartburn) and forge-welded together, is just the tip of this delicious spear. The red-hot blade, shaped by fire and hammer, is quenched in a pitcher of beer and affixed with a bacon handle coated in resin. (The handle maybe isn’t the sturdiest compared to, say, a fine mahogany, but it’s definitely tastier.)
