What follows is guide on how to make a sword using the most simple and straightforward method suitable for a beginner - stock removal (in other words, taking a length of steel and shaping it into a fully functional sword).
While this guide has been designed with the beginner in mind, learning how to make a sword is a fairly steep learning curve, requiring a fair amount of experience working with power tools - so we do not recommend this method if you are under 18 years old or are not a natural DIYer..
That said, for those of you willing to give it a try, the following guide is a great place to learn the basics of how to make your a sword based on the techniques used by sword artisan Brendan Olszowy (aka 'Brenno') from Fable Blades.com[/*:m][/list:u]
