Swordsage brought a number of LK Chen swords to try out. They are reproductions of Han Dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE) designs. I was surprised by how light they felt, while retaining plenty of cutting power.

You can also see the difference in technique when cutting tatami mats. He learned sword handling through Chinese martial arts and utilizes somewhat different body mechanics than what I'm used to from my practice of HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts).

Definitely interesting, and a lot of fun!

In this video I'm discussing some of the available evidence for Viking Age berserkers. Both the archaeological material and the written sources have certain limitations and leave plenty of uncertainties. Interpretation and speculation can conjure different possible historical scenarios, and we have to keep in mind that it's impossible to know with complete certainty who these warriors were and exactly how they operated before and during battles.

Here is my impression of this historically inspired but unusual custom sword (not a full review by my standards due to limited testing).

The asymmetrical handle is quite strange, although more comfortable than it looks. The blade seems to be a longer version of the one on his single handed Thorpe falchion, which I reviewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEFdZv7tFh0

If you're interested in this sword, it's available in my big moving sale right now:

Every now and then it's interesting or fun to look back at things you used to do. 5-10 years can seem like a long time, if you've gone through plenty of changes. So here I'm taking a look at and commenting on a few videos between 2009 and 2014. Maybe you'll find it entertaining. :)

August is crazy busy... Moving is always hectic and sucks, and certainly even more so when going from one side of a continent to the other. It looks like I'll be able to keep the regular video uploads going though, I've finished quite a number ahead of time.

So... finally finding out that you have ADD at the age of 37 is weird. Explains a lot though, and it's good to eventually have a clue of how to tackle the particular challenges you've been dealing with all your life but haven't really understood.

If you haven't seen the review of this sword:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onrdVgijjkI

I decided to remove the brass flower ornament on the grip, since I found it uncomfortable and irritating. After some polishing to get rid of epoxy underneath the visible difference irked me enough to decide to polish and re-darken the entire thing. Totally unnecessary but it turned out pretty well in the end. Ammonia vapor creates a nice patina on brass.

I recommend Renaissance Wax for sealing the surface and preventing rust or tarnishing in long term storage. It seems expensive for the amount but it lasts a long time, you only need a very thin coat.

Great design, both functionally and visually. But the material needs some improvement. Fortunately I've gotten a reply from Leon Paul saying that they are planning to improve the steel quality.

All hand forged on Vancouver Island, and it shows. The design is effective, the detail in the craftsmanship is impressive. A light axe head that gradually thins out toward the edge sticks much better, and would also be useful for light chopping, carving, etc.

How could anyone possibly think using a sharp axe in training is a good idea? Oh, the humanity...

I don't normally do this kind of video but it seems like a good opportunity to remind people of the importance of being safe and responsible with their exercise, especially when it comes to martial arts practice involving weapons. I tried to keep it reasonably polite but it's definitely a rant.

Highland Warriors, at the Canadian War Museum
https://bit.ly/2S7cjuZ
From the fierce Gaelic warriors of medieval Scotland to the proud traditions of Canada’s Highland regiments today, trace the history and culture of an enduring military icon.

In this video I talk about swords and other things I've encountered over the years that have failed to impress. Not all of these were inherently bad. Sometimes it was bad lack with an unusually negative personal experience (a lemon, perhaps?), sometimes it was something that simply didn't live up to my expectations for one reason or another. Either way I hope you find this entertaining. :)

Although I haven't had time to play it I can at least give you my opinion based on gameplay footage. A LOT of people have asked about how realistic it is, how accurate the arms and armor are, and just my opinion of the game in general. So here we go.

About the historical technique called Mordhau / Mordschlag ("murder stroke"):

From Volgarr the Viking to Expeditions Viking, Mount & Blade, and the TV show Vikings, the Norsemen have been portrayed countless times in media... The way they are presented often has little to nothing to do with actual history. So let's take a peek at what they actually looked like.
