Japanese swordsmithing DVD review

Recommended Posts

Hey friends. I just wanted to give y'all a report on a DVD I bought. I've been looking at YouTube videos on smithing for over 3 years now. I came across a great narrated video of Walter Sorrells forging a modern steel katana. I visited his website and decided to purchase the first video, Forging Japanese Style Swords. Its a 2.5 hour Dvd on forging tanto, wakizashi, and katana length blades. He demonstrates stock removal and forging techniques. I'm pleased to say the sound and video are top notch! Understandably it doesn't show every hammer strike, but it does give great detail on what is needed to create a great blade. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm not getting anything for posting this. Just thought someone might like to know about this.

I have his video on how to make japanese fittings, been tossin' around the idea of making an easter styled blade for a while but I'm still on the fence. If you're interested in the vid I have let me know.
