Welcome to the initiation of a new major project — the crafting of a Viking sword! In this inaugural episode, I take you through the intricate process of forging the blade. The design showcases a damascus “serpent” winding along a central core forged from 1040 steel, complemented by cutting edges crafted from twist damascus. Despite encountering a few more challenges than anticipated, the outcome has left me thoroughly thrilled. Stay tuned for the next episode where we’ll bring this Viking sword to its final, polished glory!
