A friend of mine works for this small company that makes the swords for this medieval show in california, and he told me, unless a sword is hammered, heated, and cooled then repeated numerous times to increase durability, he wouldn't ever use it to cut anything but foam.

That sword will shatter if used as a real sword.
Put some time in it, not just use a mould, like the orcs did in LOTR.

Even though it's beautiful, it'd be very flimsy, at least compared to a properly forged sword. But hey, it looks bad-ass, and would more than likely lop off a few un-armoured heads.
User avatar #58 to #57 - usernamesaredumb (12/18/2012) [-]
Well, yeah. But the first time it meets anything that it doesn't slice through, it'd bend or shatter. There's a reason they hammer some things instead of just casting it in a mould, and it's not cause it looks bad-ass. Well, maybe a little.

By hammering the sword before it gets cold, you put the atoms in a more stable form (the metallic atom bonds become stronger) and getting rid of stuff in the steel you don't want to be there (like oxygen). You need to do that of course for days before getting a real good sword.
There are also ways to even refine this methode even more, like the use of different metalls or alloys, folding, plaiting etc.

The shown sword would scatter the moment you hit something hard with it.

I sat here for an additional 13 minutes cuz "Making a katana" was one of the recommended videos at the end.

I think that deserves a thumb. No other content has ever made me sit on the page for this long.
