The making if this seax is a part of an ongoing series of videos where we are attempting to better understand the iron to steel process that many Viking age blades went through during the forging process. Our first video on the topic was making a Viking spear and this time we turned our experiment into a seax with lovely chased and repoussé silver fittings on a Bog Oak handle.

Check out the YT for our latest build where we turn iron into steel and then into this !

We hit a milestone over the weekend! In less then a year since it's premiere, our video of making Tanjiro's Katana has passed 12.9 Million views. This number it outstanding by itself and we are truly grateful, but the significance of this amount of views is that it passed all the videos that we ever made on MAN AT ARMS or any other video projects that we have ever worked on. It solidifies the choice we made to do it our way and to focus on the things that mattered the most to us as craftsmen. Thank you to everyone that has supported us along this crazy journey. That Works is just getting started and we can't wait to show you what we have been working on!

An all forged military grade long sword that Ilya made a while back. This sword was made purely for cutting. It features a hand forged 80crv blade with hand forged fittings. Both the pommel and the guard slots were hot punched. The grip is cord of wood! We intended on making a line of these, but we got bogged down with custom orders that take a lot of time. Would you like us to return to this idea ?

What is your favourite Sword that you guy's had forged?
This order went out today! Thanks Fiery Ice Forge for your order.
Fun creating their logo then also getting to make more That Works products too.

My 70 Year Old Japanese Samurai Haori from The Ogasawara Clan
I just watched Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent address. Everything he said about "tempering a sword" was wrong.
My son ordered a $600+ AUD dirk through this website. It arrived in Australia 3 months after shipped, with the tip broken off. The packaging was extremely inadequate.

Matt initially responded to emails, but never provided advice on a solution. He then stopped responding to emails.

My 17y.o son is upset at the money he has spent on a knife that cannot be displayed as intended.
Would love to see you guys tackle something like the sword dawn from the song of ice and fire mythology or the Glaive of the ancient from the 1980’s film krull
A Stabacus could be a fun project.
Do you make a avore for the ancer chain Piace to sendet to me to Germany
Ok, I found a new build suggestion 🙂
