Where's the tang on that blade?

absolutely fucking nowhere...

if I have learned anything about depictions of swords in both pictures and movies, it's that most artists know jack-shit about them.

still a nice picture though.

At least the blade isn't being cast, heh. That's worse than anything.

tang doesn't always have to be forged first :p it's not a recommended technique but it's definitely not mandatory

if the tang of a blade isn't made from the same piece of metal as the blade, then it's not going to be as solid a sword.

Again, it doesn't have to be forged first. I've seen some flatten out/extend the blade itself before working on the tang :p

of course you can rought-shape the blade first, but the tang needs to be from the same piece of metal, else the blade will sooner or later break of the handle.

When you have to trust your life to a sword, you're not going to accept such poor craftsmanship.

>as though it can't be forged while the blade is still heated up


anyway, you have your answer, that the blade can and is being forged first.

you can't just 'forge' a blade.

First you have to form the rough-shape and the tang.
then you tamper the blade and shape the edges and add fullers if necessary.
then you harden the blade.
then you add the hilt and guard and work the tang. (hammer/thread/whatever construction you use)
Finally, you edge the blade and test it on whether it is flexible, strong and sharp enough.

forge is being used as an umbrella term here /: the tang can still be added AFTER, not before, like you're wanting it to be in the image.

give me an example for that, because I don't think that's possible, because it would deform the blade again, making it basically pointless.
Trunchbull

you basically advocated that you can form a tang afterward so there's no point kek

"of course you can rought-shape the blade first, " "
First you have to form the rough-shape and the tang."
either one can be formed first. "i don't think thats possible" how bout try it first and THEn start saying "it's not possible" instead of "i donk't think" because it is possible.

While it's his job, it may not be his name, so I won't address him as Mr. Smith unless that's what he wants. XD
Alternate comment-
Is he Ice Wolf's relative, Metal Wolf?
