I think the blade is a lot too floppy. Those great swords are supposed to be flexible and a bit wobbly, but this is next level. I sure looks good though.

you ought to try to take some of the waste steel and try to forge it into an ingot (removing the impurities) and make something out of a recycling project.

The red dykem part was hilarious, as soon as he said “it’s the most beautiful” I knew Alec was going to react, I did not think he was going to pour the bottle in the trash 😂😂😂

Campaign to save Will from the grinding room! The last few dagger and sword projects have ALL been the types of blades with insanely complex repeating shapes that need to be perfect. I "KNOW" the point of the show is hand making it, but if you have no choice but to spend days on a belt sander or auto file you "COULD" just buy an expensive vertical mill or even a stout table router and do something very Grimsmo-like. Hand forge the sword blanks, damascus or whatever, and let the mill do ALL the work on the complex blade shape afterward saving you both days of arduous hand belt sanding and filing AND producing a more perfect finished product with less chance of failure. Then do final sanding/buffing/polishing which will still be a ton of work. It's "STILL" a hand forged blade and you could do a hell of a lot more of them and they'd be frankly just as "Alec Steele" custom.

I dont know whats going on but i think there is a ghost in your forge. Between the times 7:00 and 7:15 the forge door that points away from the power hammer keeps opening and closing when noone is there.

I don’t know what it is but the more I watch these videos where people use new aged machinery to build old weapons kinda makes me appreciate the old way of making a weapon where you put your blood sweat & tears into it not to mention good old elbow grease . Now - a - days it’s just to easy to go out a buy a piece of equipment so it makes the job easier . Do it the old way by god I think it would make you appreciate your craftsmanship more & the time you put into it . I make my weapons the old way like in the old world all by pounding & sanding & beating it into shape , sharpening by hand polishing by hand there’s more nostalgia to the piece once it’s done .

How about after the Zweihander you try craft some armour as a new challenge. Maybe a gauntlet to help you wield that beast!

Hey Alec, first off love your content! I have learned so much from watching you and Will! I do have a question for you, do you have plans and a parts list available for your "monster forge"? If so I would love to be able to get ahold of them so i can build your forge for myself!

Great Editing skills, but sometimes I just want to watch a bit of real life action, not always music high speed or slow motion music clips. A little live hammer work, or grinding, what ever. Sometimes we like to watch the skillls.

I've been watching this channel for years. Since Barker Street at least. I wish you would do more videos where you show us how you made the bottle opener and stuff like that. I'm getting a bit weary of the "Let's watch Will make yet another blade" show. *sigh*
