    Sword Facts & Myths

    • All Medieval swords weighed at least 12 pounds – FALSE

    Most Medieval swords weighed around 2.5 lbs - even long hand-and-a-half and two-handed swords weighed less than 4 lbs.

    • Medieval swords were not sharp - FALSE

    Some surviving samples of Medieval swords are still sharp - many are razor-sharp.

    • All swords should balance within 2” of the guard - FALSE

    A sword’s balance should be determined by its function, not an arbitrary standard. Swords intended for cutting often balance 5 or 6 inches from the guard.

    • Swords were made to cut through armour - FALSE

    Period armour was often work- and case-hardened and curved such that it is difficult to hit at a right angle. Late Medieval thrusting swords, even the ones with a reinforced point, were used to thrust into the gaps in armour, not through the plate.

    • Viking swords were heavier than Medieval swords - FALSE

    The Viking sword was a very highly developed sword form. Often the blades were quite thin in cross section, and as a result, were often the same or lighter in overall weight than other similarsized swords.

    • There is no such thing as the “perfect” sword - TRUE

    There are only “perfect” swords for their intended purpose and the tastes of the owner.

    • A “good” sword should be able to bend past 90 degrees without taking a set - FALSE

    Flexibility is only one of the aspects of the steel properties that is important in a sword. Too flexible, and it is inefficient in the thrust and the cut. Too stiff and it is prone to breakage. Most makers are content if a sword will bend to 45 degrees without taking a set.

    • Real swordfights were just like they are in the movies - FALSE

    Swordfights in movies are choreographed for entertainment not authenticity. Edge to edge parries and fancy techniques are designed to heighten drama in a scene. An actual swordfight would be short, brutal and much quieter.

    • Japanese swords are the sharpest and best swords ever made - FALSE

    Japanese swords have many admirable qualities and were well-suited to their intended use, but they are not necessarily sharper or better than a properly designed and sharpened Medieval sword. 

    • Medieval swordmakers were uneducated barbarians - FALSE

    It is apparent from even a cursory study of surviving Medieval swords that blademakers and cutlers were highly skilled artisans with a profound understanding of mathematics and proportion.

    • Not all swords should be as sharp as a razor - TRUE

    The sword’s intended purpose is always the guide to use — thrusting swords are not intended for cutting, so some may not even have an edge at all, just a well-defined and reinforced point.

    • Swords were tempered in urine or blood - FALSE

    The steels smelted in Medieval Europe required either clean water or oil for quenching. Urine or blood would not allow a blade to temper properly.

    • The “blood groove” is on a sword to release pressure in the wound and allow the sword to come back out - FALSE

    "Blood groove" as a term is a recent invention — "fuller" is the proper name for the groove or grooves on a sword blade. The purpose of the fuller has nothing to do with "blood" — fullers reduce weight, assist in the proper distribution of mass in a blade, and help make the blade more stiff.

    • A good sword can cut through a concrete pillar - FALSE

    Swords were intended to cut through flesh, clothing, and (in earlier swords) leather or mail armour. They are not intended to cut wood, concrete or metal pillars, even though that is often seen in films.

    • A sword will fall apart if you don’t clean the tang of the sword - FALSE

    The tang of a sword, if properly made and the rest of the sword properly maintained, will not require any maintenance for generations of use. 

    • Japanese folded steel is superior to European sword steel - FALSE

    Folding steel was a technique used by Japanese smiths to try to get the best steel they could from very poor ore sources. Folded steel blades are more likely than modern monosteels to have large, unseen inclusions of impurities that may in fact critically weaken a blade. By folding the steel billet many, many times, they achieved a more even distribution of carbon and worked most of the impurities out of the steel. The result is stunningly beautiful, but we have to believe that if a 16th C Japanese smith had access to modern monosteels, he would have switched in a heartbeat.

    • Pattern-welded steel is superior to mono-steel - FALSE

    Like folding steel, pattern-welding was a technique used to try to get the best steel from very poor ore sources.  Pattern-welding is the art of hammering together, and then twisting and re-hammering layers of iron (often of varying carbon content). The Celts as far back as the 5th century BC may have made swords by pattern-welding, and this technique was used extensively until at least the end of the 10th century.  After this, better, more consistent iron ore was obtainable, and furnace technology improved, making this laborious technique unnecessary. Also like folded steel blades, pattern welded blades are more likely than modern monosteels to have large, unseen inclusions of impurities that may in fact critically weaken a blade.

    • Swords are just big knives - FALSE

    The design of a sword is far more complex than a knife. Flexibility  balance and vibration are far more critical in a sword-length blade than in a knife-length blade.

    This is the first time I’ve ever seen an archer in a film run out of arrows or collect used arrows to reuse later.

    Accuracy: You’re doing it right.

    accuracy? this is a movie about a small band of fantabulous people with random superpowers who defeat an alien invasion led by a guy with golden goat horns and you’re worried about accuracy?

    firstly: tony, nat, and clint do not have superpowers, they rely on their skills to survive

    secondly: thor is not human, other than the use of his hammer, he is relying on the natural strength and fighting abilities of his people

    thirdly: bruce and steve were both perfectly ordinary until science got involved

    lastly: what supervillain doesn’t have at least one questionable fashion decision?

    accuracy matters

    i’m gonna cry omg
