Check out some cool Bismuth sculptures, crystals and pendants by going to:

I attempt to undo an injustice and re-create the bismuth knife that should have never been destroyed.

  • I'm going to defend my horrific tool techniques. I am not at all offended by the comments and I think a lot of them are pretty funny, but I think it might be worth mentioning why I made certain choices. For the file, it was mostly because bismuth is really soft (softer than aluminum) and it has a low melting point. So, as you file it, it gets even softer. I'm not exactly sure what happens, but it looks the file just starts cutting grooves instead of cutting anything off. I edited it out, but I did initially try filing it the same way I would steel/aluminum and it just didn't work. It's why the video immediately cuts to me moving the file around aimlessly and saying it's hopeless. It seemed to work best when I used the rasp which cut very deep grooves (the first file I used was pretty close to useless), pushed hard and constantly changed directions. I also got super tired doing this and I got super sloppy in general. I am not claiming at all that it was the best way to do it, but bismuth is different from other metals and you can't file it the same way as you would steel/aluminum. I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried filing bismuth before. For the knife, I just overestimated how sharp it was for the first cut. After failing, I thought it would be fun to use it more like a cleaver. I am nowhere near a master at using a knife, but I can assure anyone who is worried that I know how to cut food. Also, I should add that part of the fun of this video was trying to emulate Kiwami's method (which added a lot to the struggle). If the point of this was to do it most efficiently, I would've just molded it and used a belt sander or something.
