Petefire sword forging video

Forging the tang and cross guard on a training sword made from leaf spring.

In this video, Peter is filmed drawing out the tang, forging the cross guard and test fitting a wooden handle on a training sword with a rounded tip.

All the hammers used in this video are named and Peter has forged many of them to meet general or specific blacksmithing needs.

You can buy a Petefire Sword Forging Experience voucher here, where people spend 2 sessions work with Peter one-to-one on some of the processes in the video.
