When Scottish YouTube star Mike Boyd got engaged, he decided he wanted to make his own sgian dubh – the small dagger traditionally work with a kilt – for his wedding. So he hooked up with England’s most inspirational young blacksmith…


Alec Steele wanted to be a blacksmith from the first moment he saw one at work at a country fair in his home county of Norfolk. Now in his twenties, he not only makes wonderful metalwork, he also uses his skill and enthusiasm to encourage others to get involved in this ancient and honourable craft.
