Ladies and Gentlemen I present to you the video documenting the making of the Sword that won Best Sword at Bladeshow 2021. My comrade Ilya Alekseyev made the sword and I made the documentary style video of making it. This process started in 2019 before blade 2020 was canceled and worked on off and on ever since. It was a great challenge to make this video and Ilya did such an amazing job making the sword! If you are interested in seeing such a piece made and get an inside look at what motivated Ilya to choose the art that went into this piece. It's not just a how to but a why video.

I enjoyed the video, thanks.
Did Ilya do all aspects of the construction? Your description says that he made the sword but I wasn't sure in the video if it was all the same person.
