    According to this article Medieval Times knights use titanium swords in their battles.

    If you're not interested you don't have to post in this thread. It's not against the rules here, I checked.

    1. Its not encouraged to necro threads more than a few years old.

    2. The last post in this thread was from 2012.

    3. Your post about reenactors at a crappy dinner show has not an iota to do with the density nor the structure of titanium nor any properties of the discussion at hand.

    There are different grades of ti. For example my titanium knives are made of Beta ti, which is hard for machinery to work.

    The knives are sharp and hold an acceptable working edge.

    The show you link to, if they have ti 'swords,' would have dull impossible to sharpen properly 'swords' of any old easily workable ti grade and they would have no similarities to a real working sword except for the general outline.

    4. As others mention, lots have happened in the mean time since this necro thread.

    For example Mecha of this forum has been making fantastic titanium swords and we now know far more about ti swords due to him and other knife/sword makers.

    Try a forum search for ti and for Mecha's posts.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a movie of Mecha in King Arthur's Court.

    Court? They would never let him out of the smithy, and probably chain him to the forge. I have advocated in the past for just that situation, but Arthur could not only order such a thing, he had the moral laxity to make it happen.

    Like Wayland the Smith, hobbled and chained to his smithy by the King, forced to forge for his benefit. Of course Wayland had his revenge. :D


    Honestly, happy and humbled that you guys like my work.
