Have you ever wondered what Inigo Montoya and Westley chatter about while dueling with swords? What is Bonetti's Defense? Does Thibault really cancel out Capo Ferro? And how realistic is the fighting overall?
You'll find out in this video.

Check out Adam's work:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/BifrostForge

As you can imagine a blacksmith knows a thing or two about the material he works with, so in this videos Adam gives some pointers about different grades of steel, like a beginner's guide if you will.

If you're wondering about the main differences between high carbon and stainless steel, or which hardness on the Rockwell C scale (HRC) is most suitable for what kind of sword, this video is for you.

Check out Adam's work:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/BifrostForge

For this topic I figured it would be great to have a talk with an actual bladesmith, and Adam was kind enough to make some time in his busy schedule for joining me for this video. People are sometimes confused by the price of swords (and higher end knives) in reviews and don't see the point of owning anything more than a $20-50 machete. So we talked about the cost and value of high quality swords compared to inexpensive mass-produced blades, to explain where the price comes from.

Some recreational target practice with a Rossi Ranch Hand in .44 Magnum. This shortened lever-action is known as a "Mare's Leg" and originated in the 1958-61 TV series "Wanted: Dead or Alive".

I have an extended stock for it that allows it to be shouldered for more accurate shots. Makes it easier to control with one hand too, which is kind of... handy right now.

Truly practical multi-tools are not easy to design, and sometimes the focus on combining functions can compromise the efficiency of each of them.

I feel that this is one of those cases. It's a neat concept but there are too many drawbacks and limitations to be worth the price in my opinion.

#Multitool #Blade #Opinion

In this video I address the misconception that strongly curved swords / sabers are exclusively cutting blades, unsuitable for thrusting. Obviously they are not as efficient as straight blades for stabbing, but they allow for some interesting maneuvers in historical martial arts.

How NOT to thrust with a sword (aka broken wrist position)

First it was the cinnamon challenge, then Tide pod challenge, and now Bird Box... Just when you start wondering when the next iteration of cultivated stupidity goes mainstream viral, someone starts driving a car blindfolded. I can't even...

This is the improved edited version of a livestream where I talked about Youtube's stance on harmful content, what I think about these absurd challenges as a cultural phenomenon, and the problems with authoritative "solutions".

#Skallagrim #Channel #Update

If you've watched a lot of my videos over the years you may be wondering how many rooms full of steel have accumulated by now. Most of the arms and armor you've seen however are long gone.

In this video I talk about why I buy so much and keep so little of it. One of those more personal vids where I just cut loose and ramble about the things I have a passion for.

#Skallagrim #Sword #Collection

So I suddenly had an interest in trying to give the fighting in Blade and Sorcery a cinematic story with some voice acting and editing. Virtual reality has a lot of potential for creativity, since you can do free movements that other games don't allow to the same extent.

Why do all these armed thugs gang up on one dude? Well, he might have attempted to dally with the wrong lady, one who was betrothed to a nobleman. You know, aristocracy and their honor... Offended by words, defended by swords.

After narrowly escaping and hiding the hero must eventually face the danger of being ambushed by a bunch of armed thugs, injured and with nothing but a single-handed sword.

*** Specifications ***

Overall length: 34.5 cm / 13.5 in
Blade length: 20.5 cm / 8 in
Blade thickness: 5.5 - 6 mm / ca. 1/4 in
Weight: 490 g / 17 oz

Blade material: Bohler N690 cobalt stainless steel (hardness 58 HRC)
Handle material: Forprene (vulcanized thermoplastic elastomer)
Construction: Full tang, nut assembly

*** Pros / Cons ***

+ Extremely strong and durable
+ Shaving sharp edge out of the box
+ Secure and comfortable grip
+ Precise fit, well shaped guards
+ No hand shock when chopping
+ Versatile and practical as either survival or combat knife

- Expensive
- Swedge interferes with batoning
- Loose fit in the sheath
- Spine can't be used to strike sparks on a ferro rod

*** Verdict ***

As a multi-functional survival knife this is quite well designed, aside from a few flaws / drawbacks. It can cut, chop, pierce, pry, and smash if needed. Based on my testing I can say it would take a lot of hard (ab)use to even come close to damaging the blade.

There is a lot of attention to detail in the way the handle is shaped, and it's very practical. Despite the high production quality I can't help but feel it's somewhat over-priced. If you're not deterred by the price tag however I can recommend the AMF.

#Skallagrim #Rifle #Katana

As useful as a shield is in Blade and Sorcery, dual weapon is the easiest way to overwhelm AI opponents. It's also a greater advantage in virtual reality than it was in historical martial arts, and in the video I explain why.

#Skallagrim #VR #DualShield

This is Blade and Sorcery, the sword fighting game with the most lifelike weapon physics that I've seen so far. Due to the nature of virtual reality (at least in its current state) there is occasional glitchiness and weird sticky collisions, but overall BnS does a good job of simulating armed combat. With the exception of silly twirly jump attacks...

In this gameplay I try spear, sword / dagger & buckler, and bardiche (two-handed axe). More to come. :)

In this video I talk about my personal preference for how to sharpen swords for reviews and cutting practice, as well as some ideas on pros and cons of not treating the entire length of the edge the same way.

This is what happens when I'm doing a hyper-caffeinated livestream and people insist on bizarre requests. It was ironically titled "No Fun Allowed", for obvious reasons. :)

There were some good questions, like what combat with lightsabers might look like if they were real, which type of sword is best to start with for instance. And then there was the Christian Bale style MLP growling...

Here is some testing with two swords, the Darksword Armory Oslo and the Windlass Ashdown. The dummy is made of synthetic ballistic gel, which is pretty tough and resistant to cuts.

#Sword #Test #Cutting

Time to (over-)analyze the arms and armor in the most recent Assassin's Creed, set in ancient Greece (431 BCE). This series has of course always taken liberties with history and spiced it up with alternative background stories and fantasy elements. But I think it's fair to say that it claims a certain *degree* of historical authenticity at least.
