The Rifle That Made AmericaAired on Apr 11, 2016
In the heart of the Ozarks, traditional knife and gunsmith Daniel Casey breathes new life into a 200-year old classic as he crafts a custom “Poor Boy” rifle. This was the weapon of choice for the average man of the 1800s who needed to put food on the table and protect his home and family. But the rifle’s of no use against the tiny invaders who’ve moved into Daniel’s dad’s home, so he brings in the big guns to remove a colony of honeybees to a hive of their own. Then at a family dinner, the buzz is all about Daniel’s news of a new addition to the Casey clan.
The Bowie KnifeAired on Apr 11, 2016
As ironsmith Daniel Casey begins to craft a replica of the very first Bowie knife ever made, he has a big pair of boots to fill. After all, Arkansas is where that American original was first forged in the early 19th century – and it’s become a classic. So Daniel salvages steel and wood from days gone by to hammer out his own version of the 200-year old antique. He takes time out from the painstaking task to repair a Civil War-era rifle — and blow off some steam with friends shooting targets with black powder flintlocks.
