Sorry for confusing you guys...

I would just like to ask your opinion about something.

you see I am planning to do my film about medieval times that is why i landed in this forum.

I just to know the history behind the word "bladesmith"?

That is all, and means a lot to me...


please, can you give me some suggestion?

This is just a wild burro guess, but see'n as how "bladesmith" seems to get highlighted by various computer word checkers, I'd kind'a think that it's sort of a modern technical term started by a bunch of uneducated louts combining the term "blade" for a cutting instrument and the word "smith" denoting some feller who makes something to mean some feller who makes sharp cutting things.

This may be an obvious point, but Wikipedia defines the term "bladesmith" as "Bladesmithing is the art of blacksmithing that relates specifically to creating knives, swords, and other blades using a forge, hammer, anvil, and other smithing tools. Bladesmiths employ a variety of metalworking techniques used by blacksmiths, as well as woodworking for knife and sword handles, and often leatherworking for sheaths."
