If you are even passingly familiar with this website, you know we are big fans of anything with Damascus Steel. It is a unique and beautiful material that takes a tremendous amount of skill and effort to learn how to make – something this short film illustrates perfectly in high quality 8K.

Shot with the new RED Weapon camera, this video takes you inside master bladesmith Tony Swatton’s studio as he forges a Roman Gladius sword. From firing up the furnace, to folding the steel and building the handle – the high definition video follows every step in the process that goes into making the complete sword. Director Phil Holland says on his website that he was looking to create “bigger than life” images when using the new camera – we think he achieved his goal and then some.
