Sword making takes a lot of patience and skill, especially when stone carving and etching is brought into play. A crew of blacksmiths, stone makers, and artisans teamed up to recreate the Green Destiny sword from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. If you don’t remember the movie, don’t worry, this video is jammed with intensive metal work and beautiful jade carvings.
From a damascus steel blade to an intricately carved jade handle, there isn’t much to dislike about this work of art. While the video is a little long (15 min), it is well worth the time to learn about all of the different aspects of the labor intensive process.
