President Proclaims Sword Swallower’s Day

30 Feet of Solid Steel to be swallowed at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museums Worldwide

This could be a lot of fun for all the sword swallowers.

It's a shame Dan's sword order won't be filled by then. He's commisioned me to do a 10 sword set made completely of 316L stainless! No more nasty metal taste!

I will be at the Orlando Ripley's. If anyone is in the area I would enjoy meeting them.

TGN, Stainless is stainless through and through, correct? If I file on a stainless steel sword it won't make it rust will it?

Rotten, depending on what environment the steel will be used in, even touching stainless with non-stainless can cause rust. These are not forged swords, that's what Brett is referring to. I am fabricating them from a large sheet of stainless plate sheared into sword blanks. Then I will weld stainless handles to the wide ends of the blanks. The only non-stainless area will be the weld zones, and those won't be anywhere near the nasty stomach juices that make steel rust. Funny thing, acids break down regular steel but clean stainless. Once the 10 layer sword sandwich is complete I will post pics.
