Hi, a couple of my friends mentioned that we don't know how europeans in the early to the late middle ages made their swords. I was under the impression that we have a very good understanding on how this would have been done. Am i incorrect or do we understand their techniques? Any sources would be appreciated. Thanks!

Albion has a pretty decent summary here:

And while this mostly deals with modern reproductions, its points are worth considering for the actual practice of medieval swordmaking too:
