Forging a Bronze Age style sword from a semi truck leaf spring, part 3

Forging a Bronze Age style sword from a semi truck leaf spring, part 3.

The sword is forged from a salvaged leaf spring, 5160 steel, this steel very good for swords and big knives.
I use molds to forge the profile, as the central ridge common in most Bronze Age swords is almost impossible to make otherwise.

The sword is full tang, including the guard. The blade length is approximately 60 cm.

After making Amanda laugh so much in his first Audition that she just had to press that Golden Buzzer, will Daliso Chaponda’s Semi-Final jokes score him a place in Saturday’s Grand Final?

    I love making knives and such. But if I had a forge like that I would love it even more. Great video, and great sword!

    As it toiled decades unknown, bravely enduring endless cargo along ten thousand European roads, that leaf spring had no clue of the glorious destiny that awaited it.

    Well done Freerk! What wood did you use for handle? It looks very similar to our Knob Thorn (Knoppiesdoring)

    Maybe next time someone will commission a Paleolithic axe head, but in steel instead of stone. That would make just as much sense.
