Any recommended youtube channels?

So, youtube is pretty much filled these days with all sorts of bladesmiths doing all sorts of videos. Are there any recommended channels that showcase good techinque, teach good information, etc.?

YouTube sites

Hello all;

I'm new to this forum but wanted to say hello and give my two cents on decent YouTube sites.

I have to agree that Walter Sorrells has a great site.

I also like a site called Crossed Heart Forge.

https://www.youtube.com/user/CrossedHeartForge

This master blade smith is from Canada and living in B.C.

He makes the most incredible knives and he makes it look so easy. His style is Japanese blade making and his work his beyond impressive.

If that is not enough, he tries to make his knives from reclaimed vintage and antique metals.....he even makes his own charcoal for his forge.

Again, just my two cents and nice to meet you all.

+1 on Walter Sorrels.

Also, I'd check out Ray Roger's very affordable and very informative video CD's he has available on here.

Personally I like Chandler Dickinson. I find his videos easy to follow and he is just using coal (some gas), hammer and, anvil. No power hammers or hydrolic presses. Personal opinion though. Opinions are like buttholes some just stink more than others.
