Beyond Gorgeous Video Shows the Making of a Damascus Steel Sword

Video: Turn it up to 8K if you can (you can't), because this truly awesome video of master bladesmith Tony Swatton working on a Roman Gladius Sword made from damascus steel is a treat to watch. Damascus steel is basically art in a material, the metal developing a wavy pattern as the layers get built. This sword is especially awesome because it combines a 93-layer damascus technique in the blade with a twisted grip. Phil Holland filmed the video in 8K with the upcoming RED Weapon 8K camera.
