Pretty spiffy, Matt.

Beautiful. I also totally got stuck in that jig. So simple and yet so efficient.

This sword is amazing

Thank you for taking the time for doing this presentation. It has great value in many details and on many levels.

-I also like the twisting jig :-)

Wow. What a great video. I learned several things watching it that I will totally be stealing on my next build.

 

Pinned. Totally.

could you tell me how long each finished bar was after twisting? And how long the outside bar was?

i'm in the process of making the core right now. the bar is 44" long and 7/16" squared. i know there's not enough for 4 bars but i'm hoping to get 3 out it and just make the outside bar thicker. your video has helped me out alot. thanks for that.

can't believe I missed this. Wonderful! And I'm glad I found it as I embark on the third attempt at a commissioned Migration sword.

TormentChris Sorry I was away last week and didn't see you question.

 

It was so long ago I honestly don't remember the lengths. I do know I patterned the bars at 1/2" and patterned 4 5' long bars for the core. I then ground the edges clean and cut around any questionable welds. I did three blades for this sword and picked the best for the finished piece.

The dreaded necropost.. in this case not so much to be feared .. this is one of the few pieces i have made that i can look back on even after all this time and still be satisfied with it, there are some things i would do differently and things I could do better or at least cleaner now but this was and still is a pretty epic sword.
