The Serpent in the Sword is a paper by Lee A Jones studying early medieval pattern-welded swords. This video shows how to create a pattern-welded sword that actually has a serpent at its core. The sword making process while using modern tools is similar to the ones employed by anglo-saxon or viking-age smiths.
