By all that is holy, that's a fine sword!!! :ph34r:

I had to wait until just now to watch the video, and Petr posted the still photos while I was watching it, which just added to the experience.  Petr, my hat is off to you (always, of course!) but in this instance for using pressblech!  I thought it was chasing until you said that.  I am even more gobsmacked now!  

I think I'm gonna have to go lie down now...

Holy hell gentlemen; you certainly put forth your right foot.  Damn that is a fine sword.  I aspire to make something half of that one of these days.  Cheers to you both!!

I'm sorry it took so long to comment. I must have fainted and been asleep for the last few days............

Gents, I congratulate you both. That is an absolutely stunning work of the art. Exceptional mastery displayed.

I just looked up how to make the induction forge and it's all geek to me! Any way to improvise with a welder?(Mine, [Dad's, properly speaking.] is a Lincoln 225 amp stick welder that my dead grandpa bought used 40 years ago.), or would that damage the welder?

This piece is amazing and I'm sure the photos don't do it justice at all. 


The carving work is beautiful. 


Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
