      @Just Interested idk i think katanas from a craftsman perspective are more beautiful with the folding and differential hardening but european swords are probably more durable from the better furnaces. and the sword in the video will probably be a very challenging blade for an ancient blacksmith european or japanese because we have even better furnaces today and ofc he used blowtorch wielding to initially hold the metal together.

    What a piece of art it turned out to be. Beautiful. It is so beautiful and precisely made, no medieval sword would be able to compare in terms of beauty. Upper quality swords in medieval times were part of a knight's identity, taken everywhere, and passed as an heirloom, from grandfather to father to son and so forth. This sword would be a proud heirloom indeed. I never knew it took so long to make a really proud sword, that could pass as a true knight's heirloom. If a master smith needs 4 months of full time effort to make 1 proud piece, how much longer would a master smith have needed to make a knight's family sword in medieval times. It might have taken a smith years to make 1 really good sword.

      @Attempt I do, I mean genuine historical swords were really low-quality in terms of engraving, the fuller basically NEVER being straight, the blades rarely or never being fully flat, etc., Tod's Workshop has a great video on it, he makes modern replicas and he has to make them of a MUCH higher detail quality and precision otherwise they won't sell and would just look low quality - but he realises its not really accurate and he shows loads of examples including royal arms.
      THIS sword, the one in the video, is magic.

    Considering people buy shitty paintings that a 3 year old could make for millions of dollars i’m surprised this piece went for only 65k. This was hands down the most beautiful sword i’ve seen. Everything on this is pure art. Amazing work!

      This was a commissioned piece. Someone contracted for the production of a sword and 65K was the quoted price by the craftsman. The advantage to the craftsman is that they know how much they will get when it is done. If the craftsman were to build the sword themselves, without a commission, they would have no idea how much they could get for it at auction, or even if they would sell it for anything close to the price of a commission. Yes, it might well be 'worth' more than 65K, but only if you find someone for whom it IS worth more and they are able to pay it. By no means assured.

    Kyle, your claim of being a master bladesmith is no boast at all, and besides being a master bladesmith, you are an artist. That is hands down the most beautiful sword I have ever seen, and I have seen many, I am a sword fanatic. I could imagine a king proudly carrying and wielding such a blade. I am happy you were able to get such a price for it because you earned and deserve every penny of it, and I hope it was the first of many swords you are able to make and sell for that kind of money. I look forward to watching you create more beautiful pieces of art like Excelsior in the future!

    I watched half: it is very interesting especially the way you made a pattern (picture) on the sword. I lost the patience watching and certainly I would never do it by myself. But I got the idea how things are made. Thank you. Every time you said: "I worked for two days on this stage etc."-I was like: what!? I would have never had any patience. But you see: whatever we like we can spent years on. It is the power of finding something you like! Good luck! Thank you for sharing.

    For me, owning something like that sword is an unobtainable dream. It is easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.
    I’m not sure any one man, or woman can own something like that. Something that beautiful and well made belongs in a museum somewhere for all of us to admire.
    You sir, are more an artist and a true craftsman. You’re on a level that’s completely out of this world.
