Footage from our 2012 sword forging course.
On day one you begin with a piece of 5160 spring steel and leave on day five with a sword. During that time you will forge the sword to shape, then grind, heat treat, and polish the blade. You will also make the quillions, handle and pommel. These components will be assembled with the blade to create a finished sword.
During the week various demonstrations and discussions about swords will offer additional insights. Sword testing demos, examination of actual historical swords and modern replicas as well as discussions about scabbard construction and much more.
