  • 😩😪 how boring has this channel become. Used to love Alec but ever since he moved to the states things have gone down hill. Now he's come back things have dipped further! Annoying shaky camera and weird angles, really? Thought you'd recruited an GCSE videography student. I don't know what this channel has turned into. Won't be returning to find out anyways. Time to unsubscribe me thinks.

  • From the instagram pictures I was expecting a Kraken like handle. The tips kinda looks like the head of a calamari, and the rest of the handle like it's tentacles screwing around the hilt. It does look cool though.

  • Wouldn't the sudden narrowing of the blade just above the handle dramatically weaken it? I remember hearing something about how doing that in a sword made is much, much weaker than if it had been narrow all the way down, due to the way the stress propagated.

  • Check this out. I created a sword in my head. I can see it fully. I just have no forging skills or any artistic ability. 1080 steel for the 3 foot long blade with a fuller and 12.5 inches for the tang. Mild steel oval guard measuring 6 inches long by 4 inches wide by 1/2 inch thick. Handle made of oak wrapped in leather measuring 8.5 inches long. A 3 inch wide, 1/2 inch thick disc pommel at the back also made of mild steel. The last 1/2 inch of the tang is for peening over to make the back of the sword tight. Embellishments include the phrase "Death awaits all who oppose this blade.," in Latin down the fuller from tip to guard. Demons and dragons on the flats. 2 dragons chasing each other around the guard separated by 2 rubies at the apexes. A human skull minus mandible with rubies for eyes on one side of the pommel. On the other is a demon skull with 4 horns, and elongated narrow triangular jaw also with rubies for eyes. As you can tell, i've spent time on this thing in my head. All comments welcome.

  • Enjoy the different episodes, but i wonder about one thing; All the Grinding. As a Shipbuilder myself, working over 10 years in a shipyard, building by standards of the 80./90. decent sized bulkcarriers and tankers (around 100 000 Gross tonnage/GT). Every surface had to be "mirror glossy" before paint, but not even inside the cargo tanks, have i seen so much grinding. So much waste of material. Nowadays you even have plasmacutters and so on, but you still end up with half of your material on the floor, must spend fortunes on belts..

  • Fyi, 11L44 steel machines almost as easily as brass. So worth picking up a bar if you decide to start over. Unfortunately it also rusts as soon as you look away, so plating the final part would be a good idea. (got a lot of sulfur, phosphorus, and lead to lubricate tools and form chips easier, but they sure don't help vs rust.)

  • Have you considered attempting to forge copper beryllium alloy? I'm really curious to see how it behaves under the hammer. Would it crumble easily like brass? Or is it ductile enough to shape? Will it work harden? Does it anneal the same way copper would? Could make an interesting and educational video.

  • Hi there, you're probably thinking "This is part 1, but I wish I could see part 2 already. I bet Alec is up to filming part 12 right about now..." Which may very well be true. But, more likely is that right at the instant you are reading this sentence, Alec has just accidentally broken the blade in half (which he has spent the last 5 weeks working on while attempting to fix a minor issue that no one else would have even noticed if he hadn't pointed it out), and he has now decided to start over from scratch. So expect part 2 some time in June maybe? XD
