Any students of Roman military history here? Wonder if this guy can make me a Viking sword? The end of the video is pretty cool when he gives a demonstration of what it is capable of.

Gladius was designed for stabbing not slicing. Very cool video

You can find swords just about anywhere...and hand forged. Then you can practice Tameshigiri.
