    Not only is this piece of craft / art perfect. The video is so well made, that you can almost touch the artwork.
    Actually you could make one, if you dared to, just out of this video.
    Thank You!

    Absolutely stunning for the amount stuff you had access to. However, there's something I think you missed and it's a small part, easy to fix. It looked like you made the handle circular. Usually, bladed weapons in general have oval handles so that one can feel the edge alignment in the hand.

    Un trabajo increíble!! He estado pensando en hacer un espada, en mi caso solo como adorno ya que no tengo tanto conocimiento del oficio de herrería, y por falta tiempo no podría trabajarla para darle tanto nivel de detalle , pero ahora me entra la duda, y justo tengo una viga de hierro de ese exacto grosor 😋😋

      @Brosph Brostar I know, I worded that poorly. What I meant was that good grip helps with controlling the spinning, so you'll have atleast a chance of having the blade somewhat aligned.

    • Brosph Brostar
      Brosph Brostar Před 5 měsíci +6

      It's not a matter of grip. The reason a swords handle is oblong shaped is so you get more effectively align the blade with your cut. A round handle offers no tactile feedback on where the blade edge is facing.

    I'm impressed. I was under the impression that rebar was always a milder steel. I have a friend who is forging a blade out of rebar. Since we were using my forge, I gave him the two-handed sledge hammer and I got to hold the steel. It still took us 2 days.

    • goldenagenut
      goldenagenut Před 2 měsíci +2

      I've been hammering out knives for more than 20 years - regular rebar is soft, usually a mixture of lesser steels, it generally won't temper, will not hold an edge and rusts at the drop of a hat.
      This gentleman did a fantastic job hammering out a sword blade, beautiful work! Doing it the hard way too 👍 f yeah. Much better than i could do!!! That high polish is downright snazzy. 👌
      ( If you want a real beast, forge one out of one of those coil springs! Talk about tough(!), some of my favorite blade steel but it is hard stuff. It holds a great edge, will take a good bend and spring right back but hammering out a sword will take a lot longer - when you start hammering it just looks at you, it moves slow until you flatten it out some, but man it makes a rugged, sharp blade!

    Very beautiful! Heads up, the handle of a sword is traditionally less of a perfect cylinder, more oval in cross section, for ease of grip and control of the sword. Super cool sword though, major chops!

  • OneShotDynames
    OneShotDynames Před 5 měsíci +113

    very pretty. but issues are as follows 1. rebar is not harden able steel 2. clay coating is not to prevent carbon loss its to provide a differential heat treat to the edge and core of the blade giving strength to the edge and flexibility to the core. 3. tempering is not to harden the blade it is to pull hardness out of the blade in a controlled manner to give flexibility and prevent snapping. 4. while convenient a burn through on the handle material leaves gapping (caused by the burnt material) and embrittles the wood leading to possible cracking. 5. not a negative cudos on the guard and pummel they are gorgeous. all in all you made a beautiful piece and i hope you don't take anything i have said as anything other than constructive criticism. i love seeing people make blades keep at it.😊

    • givemeanameman1
      givemeanameman1 Před 4 měsíci +1

      @Marcos VILARDI Max carbon content you may find in rebar is about 0.24%, rebar needs to flex and stretch as concrete heats/cools, as such rebar that has too much carbon content will crack and induce failure in the concrete.
      I am sure at some point for some project high carbon content steel rebar may have been required for a very specific reason, but I highly doubt Almost Perfect Restoration has such a piece of rebar.
      High tensile strength rebar used where it needs to be specifically strong is around 0.2% carbon it has up to 0.35% silicon.
      Also as mentioned the sparks are dull.
      Occam's razor.
      1.He had a very rare specially made rebar and set his camera wrong so the sparks looked dull, which he also by accident calls IRON REBAR.
      2.He had a normal piece of rebar(iron as he stated) and it didn't take a heat treat and the dull sparks prove it.

    • Никулин Аким Сергеевич

      As a HEMA practicer, I wanna add that such parameters as a balance are EXTREMELY important. This sword will not work as a sword even if it's hardened well. And even if balance is OK, other EXTREMELY important parameter is the physics of vibration of a sword. With this one your hands will be completely destroyed by vibrations during the blows and cuts

    A beautiful blade you forged there! I'm curious how well it'll hold an edge, as rebar is a fairly mild steel compared to the tool steel most blades are made of. Once again, excellent work!

    • Aaron James
      Aaron James Před 4 měsíci

      @Geni Ceka this thing would bend so easily. Rebar is low carbon, cheap garbage. I wouldn't want to have to rely on one of your rebar blades unless I wanted something the bends easily and I had to sharpen every five minutes.
      I don't use rebar to make blades because it is garbage. Get dome decent steel.

    • Geni Ceka
      Geni Ceka Před 4 měsíci

    • Dekul Runo
      Dekul Runo Před 4 měsíci +1

      @Autumn Well a spark test can give a rough idea for a smith who knows what they are doing (color and amount of sparks when touched with a grinder), also could have simply cut a small piece and tried heating and hardening it before doing all the work on the sword.

    • Autumn
      Autumn Před 5 měsíci

      @Dekul Runo I’ll be honest, I know there are ways to check carbon content, but I don’t know how he could’ve tested that rusty rebar before putting it through the forging/smithing process

    • Troublemonkey
      Troublemonkey Před 5 měsíci

      @Dekul Runo if so, them smacking it on the ground after hardening would surely have cracked it

    • Dekul Runo
      Dekul Runo Před 5 měsíci

      @Autumn Depending on the rebar it can be anywhere from .05% carbon to 1.7% ie way too little or way too much, or it could be just right for 1070-1080 carbon steel, possibly he checked that it was a hardenable piece beforehand.
