    Don't make this guy mad. He could build a sword in a day, kill you and come back and turn it into
    a hammer.....


    Each of those in these videos are masterpieces... and they all are so different.
    Need to use them. Nice job ever

    You can be proud of your skills! By the way, how would a 12th century Viking have made that center groove? Or would they have even bothered with the difficult multi layer process?

      Traditional blacksmiths forged their fullers with a special tool. If you look at 8:47 in the video you'll see he has two flat pieces of wood that evenly flatten the steel when placed in the power hammer. The tool used to Create fullers is like that but have a cylindrical hump that evenly distributes the metal out. Of course back in the day they would have used a team of apprentices with big hammers instead of a power hammer.
      Fullers were used to decrease the weight while retaining the same strength and using less steel. Today steel is cheap and figuring out exactly how large your sword will be after forging the fuller is difficult so most modern blacksmiths simply grind them out.

    So I’m curious. Why cut the stack steel with the gravity saw then after each forge weld you cut the billet with an angle grinder and cutting wheel? Wouldn’t the saw be faster?

    Surely the advantage of Damascus steel comes from the bending part rather than the actual layering of it, wouldn't it make more sense to bend/roll a single peice?

    i understand none of this, i mean i know damascus is several metals smashed together and i understand the concept of drawing out the metal but why you keep smashing the same metal together over and over, why you pour a sand or powder of some kind over it, i want to get into blacksmithing but no idea what's going on here

      He repeats the process of forge welding to get more layers - making the pattern more distinct. The more layers the finer the pattern. The powder is a flux known as borax. It helps with the forge welding process ensuring that the weld is good and removes impurities that could ruin the weld.

    After seeing Japanese master craftsmen make those incredible swords, I’m afraid this seems rather basic and pedestrian. Although I have to admit that these would be quite effective if you bonked someone on the head with it.

    And, the story goes, he so brave and pure of heart, reached into the mouth of the fire spitting dragon and yanked out its tooth made of ore. While covered in dragons blood and the knights it devoured, he melded it into the sword of lost souls. Excellent craftsmanship!

    Реально викинги не умели делать дамасскую сталь, лишь небольшая часть свеев умела работать с металлом, делая настоящие шедевры из стали, в основном благодаря редкоземельным металлам и очень аккуратной работе. Но ни когда не делали многослойную сталь - это исторический факт, им просто делать это было не за чем - получалось и-так отлично!

    It's nice to see a metal working shop that is clean, organised and well-lit, unlike another sword making channel which uses the dark, dirty, medieval scrap yard aesthetic. Tidy shop, tidy mind.

    this middle section of the blade - shouldn't be forged instead of grinded in, so it get more strength in the core of the blade? just asking, i'm completely noob about this. very nice craftsmanship.
