Door County Blacksmith To Be Featured On National TV Program "NOVA"

Ric Furrer has been blacksmithing for twenty three years; creating architectural works like gates and railings, but also swords and knives. That sword creation - specifically in historical weaponry - is what lead to contact and inclusion in a nationally airing episode of the television program "NOVA" entitled "Secrets of the Viking Blade."

The program talks about a very specific group of Viking Swords forged with more strength than typical swords of the era. In the episode, Furrer creates a replica of a blade he describes as the most difficult thing made in the time period.

Furrer says filming with a national crew was a very new and different experience.

"Secrets of the Viking Sword" airs on PBS October 10 at 9:00 PM.

Watch Secrets of the Viking Sword Preview on PBS. See more from NOVA.
