Tod just posted this video about a pattern welded sword based on a book, here below quoted from Tod's blurb about the sword as he can tell it better than I can:
|Owen Bush, amazing pattern welder, teacher, sword smith and old friend was asked to make a Viking era sword from a novel. It is an extraordinary collaboration between Owen and Petr Florianek, with a blade of meteorite and pattern welded steel and hilted and scabbarded in carved bronze and bone.
He has never seen it finished, I have not seen it at all and it was a great excuse to visit Owen and talk swords with some pattern welding demonstration on the way.
This all came about because J.C.Duncan wrote a book called "A song of steel", https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08W5F5WKF set during a clash between Norse .........

Also, an interesting demonstration about how Owen Bush uses contrasting plasticine to simulate pattern welding and figure out patterns before attempting them in iron and steel.
You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!
