The Serpent in the Sword project is slowly progressing. I have posted a couple more videos documenting the process. In part 2, the bevels of the sword are forged, the geometry is established on a belt sander and the sword is finally heat treated. In part 3, the sword fittings are made, e.g. the lower and upper guard as well as the pommel and wooden hilt. If things go right, the sword will be finished just in time to my visit to Germany in July. The Viking museum in Haithabu has a special event in which 20 Viking ships will sail to its harbor. There is also the new Viking Puppet Theater which should be fun to watch. It's called "Wikinger Puppentheater Ygdrasil" and has it's premiere in April at the museum in Haithabu.
I just strolled around in Youtube and saw your Part 1 on this series of Videos. I was absoloutely amazed what your doing and watched all parts. I was fascinated with the beauty of the work and the final look of the sword. I once build a Knife when I was in school. That was a long time ago and I still have it, I'm proud of it. And I'm proud that in this hight tech times somebody still can build such beautiful thing with his own hands. With a lot of knowledge, experience and craftsmanship. Also the camera work and the Speaking is very professional.
