Big Giant Swords
This show follows the unique artistry of "Irish" Mike Craughwell, a professional welder who specializes in making gigantic swords. Living deep in the woods of Martha's Vineyard, MA, Irish Mike painstakingly creates his swords by hand, with the assistance of a ragtag group of local islanders. Each weapon is unique - inspired by history, mythology, or games - but they all have one thing in common: they are huge! His creations measure up to 8 feet tall and weigh up to 100 pounds. After completing each job, Mike musters all of his strength--and his wild imagination--to put his creation to an outlandish test, to prove that it is a real, working sword.
