    All right, I got ahold of a big group of photos of the zweihander after it was polished up, sharpened and given a tungsten carbide edge! These are good photos that show what the sword looks like better than the ones I was able to capture.

    Not to inflict you with too many video clips, but here is a little quick one in slow motion that shows how the long blade flexes. Seeing it helps to convey what this lively blade feels when you swing it around: :)

    Another sword build is already being plotted, and it's going to be the weirdest one yet. :D

    Awesome.

    How do you put a tungsten carbide edge on a titanium sword?
