Blacksmith Tony Swatton builds Gimli's 'Bearded Axe' out of Damascus steel

Having recently taken a basic blacksmithing workshop, I've been on the hunt for videos demonstrating master artisans at work with the forge and hammer.  Tony Swatton is one such master.  In this video he folds steel into 148 layers before hammering together a better-than-the-original replica of Gimli's 'Bearded Axe' from Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' movies.  Pretty sure even Christopher Tolkien would approve of this one.
