Here is a treat for everyone who loves the pictures and illustrations of sword and metal working. The clip shows some real hard core craftsmen, watch the way they move and how natural the actions of working the blades seem to them. It is almost more feel than watching for these highly skilled individuals. Great stuff and a real insight into the renowned center of Solingen sword making.

Go here and click on Videos and then the title Solinger Klingenhandwerk, Swordmaking in Solingen 

The site is by Dr. Stefan Maeder who has been doing research into the comparison of European and Oriental swords for some years. He is using the methodologies of the Japanese sword polishers and appraisers. Some interesting ideas and insights.

There are also info on a Tatara smelt and Kendo exhibition.

Enjoy
Craig

There is a wealth of available information in Solingen, pity the movie doesn't get into technical details. The smith using a power hamemr to make a saber is incredible, we ll know how much time it requires to hone one's skill to obtain consistent result with such machines.

Also there are interesting dies for saber fullers whose way of using is not shown . I will try to obtain more information from the maker of the video, Solingen is worth a long stay.
