New Arctic Fire Videos

Recommended Posts

Michael Bergstrom, the talented film producer and bladesmith who generously provided the filming of AF 2016 has recently released new videos from that event.  He added them to the announcement topic, but I thought I'd post a new topic so you all didn't miss them. 


For those of you that don't know, AF 2016 was in two parts. Each smith did a practical demonstration of technique, and another presentation on the theme of the event, Grendel's Hoard from Beowulf. The demo videos have been out for about a year. Michael is now working to release the thematic presentations.


Here is a link to his youtube channel. Also, I've pasted below his announcement from the AF thread. 








Chapter 1-3 have been posted online with the demos, over the next week all the videos will be online as well as several profile/in depth videos and a doc about the giants sword construction. A couple hours of new videos have gone up. Next week will be never before seen content though.
