Monkey Sword Fight


Cool video on what sound a sword makes when being drawn from a scabbard or sheath. Anyone really into swords will be nodding their head while watching this vid.

All excellent points, but, man, few things set the dramatic tension on screen better than a sword slowly being drawn from it’s sheath to a metallic hiss. Sometimes you just gotta say screw history for the sake of the story.
