Man at Arms: Reforged Brings Battlefield 1’s Jambiya Knife to Life (Video)
Battlefield 1 has been out for nearly a week at this point, and people seem to be absolutely loving it. Well, most people seem to be loving it. Some have experienced this column of hell fire, but even that appears to be loved by most. Now you can love a whole new thing from Battlefield 1: The Jambiya Knife!

AWE me brought the heat in the latest episode of Man at Arms: Reforged, which was guest hosted by none other than Machete himself, Danny Trejo. This time around, the team tackles the Jambiya Knife from Battlefield 1. Jambiya, which is Arabic for “dagger”, also refers to a short, curved blade, and is very much like the knife wielded by T. E. Lawrence in the First World War.
The video follows the Man at Arms team as they forge the Jambiya Knife with what is called crucible steel, and the process of cutting, molding, grinding, soldering, engraving, painting, and every possible thing under the sun…the handle. As one might imagine, the process of bringing this relic of the past to life is no walk in the park, but for seasoned blacksmiths, that walk is surely a lot smoother. Using intricate sculpting and engraving techniques, as well as copious amounts of good old fashioned hammering, the team is able to produce an absolute work of art. Check out the video below!
Every other Monday, you can catch a new episode of Man at Arms: Reforged over on AWE me’s YouTube channel. Last time, they made the chainsword from Warhammer 40K and it is beautiful!
