There is a video out in which Peter Johnsson talks about this topic. It was already mentioned in a previous post: http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=26327

Hi all,
If you are here on this forum then you probably know who Peter Johnsson is.....he gave a couple fascinating talks at a bladesmithing event in Alaska last week. There are videos online here: http://forums.dfoggknives.com/index.php?showt...ntry223115

In the first video he discusses sword construction and blade properties, and in the second he discusses his new theory on medieval sword design and aesthetics. This is fascinating stuff. Thanks so much to the Arctic Fire folks for hosting the event and sharing it with the world.

I just finished watching the video's of Peter's talks, but there are a number of other videos there from other outstanding craftspeople who's names you'll surely recognize from this forum. I'm looking forward to seeing what they had to say. What an awesome resource! Enjoy.

EDIT: Forgot to say thank you to Peter, for sharing his hard-earned sword making wisdom with us all. His intellectual curiosity and generosity of spirit are always inspirational.


Even though there is another thread for this, I thought it would be appropriate to also have it here, so that people looking at THIS thread would also have the benefit of this amazing lecture.

If you want a direct link to the video: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/23590865?fb_ac...1481237582

PS: the actual lecture doesn't start until 00:02:14

PPS: Here is the link to his second video, which is every bit as good: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/23612784?fb_ac...1481237582

Only you can deny yourself your rights.
Too ignore the rights of others, is to forfeit you own!

I thought my head would explode when I read this thread. Then I came to the post with the links to the videos.

Those were awesome! The second one especially.

And the videos are available for purchase, as part of a 6 DVD set from the whole Artic Fire 2012 event: http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=25759

These don't have the drops in image quality that affected the live stream, or the annoying ads!
