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

 

Pinned. Totally.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

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.

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.

Nice work Matt. It is beautiful.  it must be fun to swing..  Are you keeping it as a show sword or a user blade? any idea what the cutting edge hardened out to Hrc?
