not what I'd call true forging, at least he heat treated the steel, it'd be nice to know what steel he was using, he certainly has skill to make them quickly though.
I'd like to see what he can do when he has the time to forge it from scratch.
also folding is kind of superfluous nowadays, it was originally to remove impurities in the steel, steel is so pure now that folding is not necessary (though it can look pretty with some etching and different steels)
I want to see the spear thing from Dragonslayer!!!!
I would like to see the Hattori Hanzo sword from Kill Bill.
onle few hours in a day at home and get a $5000 in a week just read this link properly.. http://wow92.com
just as Albert replied I am taken by surprise that a mom able to get paid $9271 in 4 weeks on the computer. did you look at this web page >>>>>>>>> xd5.net/huffingtonpost
I was hoping to see some actual forging but my biggest problem was what he said blood grooves were for. Blood grooves are not for releasing "the vacuum" when stabbing something. That is nothing more than a myth. They are there to make the sword lighter while not messing with the strength of it. It is the same thing as using I-beam's in construction instead of a solid square metal bars.
I am not saying this guy is a fake, but, before the next time he goes on camera he should definitely do his h
i didnt see anything that a 12 year old chinese kid couldnt do at a sweatshop.
And I thought all you professional forgers were in prison. Nope you all troll break.
It is cool for what it is..A Prop.
That blood groove is a myth.
it's just a way to lighten the sword a little.
Ya, though impressive, it wasn't really from scratch. He just grabbed a piece of steel stock and used a BAND SAW AND GRINDER to make the blade.
So many living room blacksmiths here. In 2013, you don't need to fold and forge the steel to have a quality material. What makes the steel solid is the heat treatment. I'm pretty sure the swords he makes would cut a katana in half.
Come on, all that work and the coolest thing you can find to cut through is a couple wine bottles and a fire filled vase?
no shit, nice slowmo.. didnt know you could destroys glas bottles with steel
So if we lose Gun rights, can we walk around with swords?
I was thinking the same thing! And all this time I thought we were all a bunch of dopes...nope...half of us are sword forgers I guess.
If that sword hits anything it will break in half. This is just your average $99 novelty wall hanger. Real swords start out as a steel block then are folded over and over a couple hundred times.
This guy sucks BALLS...I would never own a sword by him.
It's so strong...you can break GLASS with it...ummm, like a BOSS!
So did he even fold the steel? Most sword pummels are not a separate piece. This video basically showed us how to make a fake useless sword. Of course, it WAS made for a TV show.
No forging? The molecules aren't aligned. This is a piece of crap sword.
i highly doubt that's Valyrian steel
This video was that manly that I actually grew a beard watching it.
kickass vid. love how they attached the camera to the sward while working on it and dipping it into water
I'm calling out the man's skills, but from the title I expected to see him forging it.
Thank you, now deliver my pepperoni pizza!
LOL, Goatshonor, You're a Flipping idiot. I am personal friends with this Tony and have stood at the forge and anvil with him. He has forged more swords, knows more about weapons, armor and metallurgy than you will ever know. This is the first show, you are going to feel like an idiot for saying "you're calling out his skills" Go back to playing WOW in your moms basement and leave the real world makers to the experts.
I was also thinking it would be forged, but no one would take that kind of time for a movie prop... at least now a days. As to all the other naysayers who posted on this vid. Stock removal is a perfectly viable method of sword construction, a sword doesn't need to be forged from a block of steel or folded to be a sturdy weapon.
He was forging it...
Yea it didn't show him forging or folding the steel and he had the pummel screw in like a cheap renaissance fair prop. I raised my eye brow after he said he traced the pattern on the steel, what lazy blacksmith.
Actually, all of the swords from Lord of The Rings were forged from folded steel. This was supposed to be some sort of big deal, but it's really just what you buy at the mall for like 50 dollars.
no he wasnt, he forged the handle but milled and ground the blade
He forge the handle because it's a complex form, not to give it more strength. The steel is heat treated at the end.
