BIG GIANT SWORDS 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.

In his Youtube channel "michaelcthulhu", aka "Irish Mike" already showed for some time, what he is capable of. It stands to reason, that "art" and "artisan" have the same word stem. While his show on Youtube is pure and concentrates on the necessary, this adaptation by an american channel has its flaws. It just can't be a guy doing his thing, they need drama - and what BS they do for that should also rise the mighty eyebrows of my admired "michaelcthulhu". The 4 star rating comes for him, and for the very interesting leather craftswoman. They get 12 stars combined, the more then ridiculous pomp around that reduces that by 8 stars, hence the 4 star rating. Watch this guy doing his thing, crazy as it is, IF you yourself like to get your hands dirty from time to time, BUT check out his channel on Youtube to see the difference!
