Submission + - Google engineer shows how to forge swords and knives->

An anonymous reader writes: Niels Provos, an engineer at Google working on malware and phishing protection, is showing on Youtube how to forge knives and Viking swords. The process is absolutely fascinating and follows the steps of Viking blacksmiths from a thousand years ago. It starts by taking small bars of metal that get heated and hammered together until they become a solid piece. He then shows how to form it with the hammer, heat treat and polish it. All the videos are narrated explaining the purpose of each step. Sure beats sitting in front of the computer.
