A very good series. They go in depth on a lot of the details, explaining how and why and what they are doing. They recently did one on a viking sword using crucible steel . Highly recommend it. Also their build on the katana from Kill Bill, lot's of good info there. They also did a anime katana recently that they showed the quench by using an aquarium  so you can see the way the sword bends as it cools.

I've watched about 30 of the videos in the last week so far, including the three you mentioned.  I am very impressed with the patience and perseverance of these guys when creating these items to get things just right.  And that's when they're using modern tools - when they use the older techniques - well, it gives me a whole new respect for the armorers and blacksmiths of the centuries before the industrial revolution.

Ooo! I didn't know there was a second show! I loved Man at Arms! :bday:

 

I poked around their videos to see what they had, and I kind of lost it when I saw that they'd made Squall's gunblade. *excited flailing and fangirling ensues* OH MY GOSH IT WAS SO EPIC AND AMAZING AND AWESOME AND COOLNESS  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

 

*ahem* I think what I love most about this show is their attention to detail, and the fact that they always make the weapon functional (well, as functional as possible. Case in point: Keyblade and Buster sword), and then slice stuff with it (or, in the Buster sword's case, just sort of...drop it on stuff lol).

 

Huzzah!
