Legend of the Viking Sword (2012)

This one should get you out in the shop trying to burn it down. Mysterious steel constructed the UlfBerht and an awesome steel working guy makes high quality steel in a backyard kiln. Making low carbon, low occlusion steel was a lost art between the year 1000 to the 19th century.  It turns out a guy can make crucible steel in his back yard.

A Viking carrying an UlfBerht would crush opponents because the steel is so refined.
