    Arctic Fire: Artifacts From The Present

    This a movie made by and about modern Bladesmiths that make mostly historic European and predominantly Germanic style of weapons. The Smiths in this movie are some of the best in the world. Most of these men are full time professionals that have come together in Alaska in 2013 to make this blade. Most of these smiths do not do many reproductions, instead they focus on the style of Germanics knives, swords and axes. It is well worth the watch and this is not just the craft of making weapons as it demonstrates what is true art form.

    These guys are using modern tools and equipment, however the process is the same as in ancient times.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    One of the artist from Artic Fire,

    Forging A pattern-welded Viking sword


    This just sums up the work on the blade. This is the difference between a real sword and one you might find on some online shop that sells reenactment gear.
