Beyond Gorgeous Video Shows the Making of a Damascus Steel Sword

By Bryan Menegus on at

Turn it up to 8K if you can (you can’t), because this truly awesome video of master bladesmith Tony Swatton working on a Roman Gladius Sword made from damascus steel is a treat to watch. Damascus steel is basically art in a material as the layers get built, this sword is especially awesome because it combines a 93-layer damascus technique in the blade with a twisted grip.

Phil Holland filmed the video in 8K with the upcoming RED Weapon 8K camera. You can read more about the process here.
