Malky: For everyone that biatches about him not pounding out a blade you should remember he is being paid to make swords being used on a tv show. He isnt trying to make period masterpieces. Im guessing that HBO wouldnt pay him for the work to make a proper sword even if he wanted to.
red5ish: I am not going to watch the show but I'd love to have that guy's job.
Suckmaster Burstingfoam: r My Bloody Valentine cover unless your guitarist is playing a surfcaster and your bassist is lesbian.
Corvus: Brontes: The only smithing he did was on the cross-guard, everything else was machine tools. A little on the lame side./super amateur knife makerYeah because he actually does it for a living, he is not a Ren Faire attendee.
loonatic112358: kroonermanblack: Not going to get me to click an i09 link, sorry.I take it from the posts he 'blacksmiths' his swords the same way 99% of drama iron is 'blacksmithed'.The blade is cut out on a bandsaw the groove is milled in, and the rest is on the grinderThe Hilt it looks like he actually hammers the whole thing, and the pommel is investment castI give him a D- he could have put more effort into the blade
msupf: Yeesh, this guy is an embarrassment to any real blacksmith.A fuller is not a blood channel or blood groove, or blood whatever. It was for making the sword lighter and less flexible./going to watch the PBS special where a real blacksmith makes an ulfbreht sword from scratch.
