Arcade Arms--Spartan Sword

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Here is a crossover show which illustrates the historical roots of some of the more famous video game edged weapons.

This show was on the Spartan Short Sword from "God of War" and how it evolved to what they use now from what they used then.

 

My assistant is Jeff Benson of Benson Designs in Green Bay, WI

The film crew came in from Hollywood and filmed for one long day. Due to the length of the show much of the info filmed in the shop had to be cut. 

Hard to distill it for all audiences as well so it it not a "how-to" for blades, but rather an introduction to the method.

 

I like the concept....how digital entertainment draws from old craft.

 

Enjoy.

Ric

Ric has always been a master at his craft.......

 Its how good he looks on tv that shows through in his recent programs. 

 Ric you have a talent for it and manage to get the cerebral smith to shine through whilst keeping that Hagrid, Dwarven, god of smithing look going.

 all the best Owen

Thanks for posting this although I still think my sons would be better off at the anvil than at the computer playing the danged game. Time at the anvil is well spent time in the game not so much.

Thats great Ric! shame there is so little forging shown 

 

Is there no chance of a video showing some more of the forging for us Metal-Geeks?  no need for too much fancy editing ;)
