Reclaiming the Blade Kickstarter Campaign!

It's Reclaiming the Blade Day on the Middle-Earth Network! We are running a Kickstarter campaign to create a second documentary called Reclaiming the Blade: Sons of Fire!

What is Reclaiming the Blade? Well, It's a documentary made in 2011 and it's a day in celebration of the romance, history, legends and symbolism of the sword. The sword is no longer a weapon used in warfare but once it was one of the most important weapons in a warrior or soldier's arsenal. Whether swords of bronze, iron or steel the sword has a special place in the history of Man and also in story-telling. On August 3rd we take a closer look at the forging, artistry and craftsmanship in making these blades and what they represented in cultures in history and in story and legend.

While the actual day of festivities on the Middle-Earth network is drawing to a close you can watch all of the great video content at your leisure on the site. Most of all please support our Kickstarter campaign to make the second documentary, Reclaiming the Blade: Sons of Fire. To find out more about the campaign, go to our Kickstarter page and become a supporter. We need your help to make this happen. if you love swords, fantasy, history or anything related to these things check out our content and support our campaign to have the second documentary film made about sword-making and the lost martial art of western sword-fighting.
