Springhammer Project


Forging Knives Japan was not really part of the plan. But I couldn’t be happier that it happened to me. Some backstory for those curious:

Kevin Kent [owner of Knifewear]: “man, when I go to Japan I do so much cool shit, and wouldn’t it be rad if we could capture some of that radness on camera”
Me: “yeah man, sure would”
Kevin Kent: “dude, let’s do it”
Me: “game on”

It wasn’t quite that simple but it might as well have been. So the original concept for the project was to shoot a short

    Very cool. Any axes?

  3. Kevin says:

    Alan – thanks!
    Andrew – the blacksmith interviewed in the trailer makes hatchets & knives. Another intereviewee specializes in razors. No axes on camera though.

    Holy shit, this looks fabulous! Unintentional is far more authentic. Can’t wait.

    Looking forward to this immensely.

  6. SPRINGHAMMER is an amazing name for a metal band, though it should probably have a few umlauts added to it.

    Also good for your thing.

    The trailer gave me a hard-on.

    Is there going to be a showing of Springhammer in Calgary? Someone said Oct 20 at the Plaza theatre, but I can’t find any information about it.

  9. Kevin says:

    Greg – you bet. Knifewear is organizing this one – check their twitter feed or call the shop for details.

    Would very much like to see this. Are any other showings planned for Edmonton? Perhaps a pay per view on your website?
