1 Sword Production
minutes – colour (The original film had deteriorated somewhat and the
colour has a decidedly red hue to it) sounds of factory work, but no
commentary- shows the manufacture of Wilkinson swords from the blank steel
billet to the finished article, including scabbard making and the sand
casting of brass hilts.
2 Armoured Vest; Production & Testing
minutes – black & white – sound commentary and interview with Wilkinson
Sword personnel, includes film sequence of testing of an armoured vest with
pistols and machine gun.
3 Sword Manufacture
minutes- colour- minor damage (10 seconds) during introduction, but this
does not interfere with enjoyment of film- sound commentary and interviews
with Wilkinson Sword directors and blade etcher. Very similar to film No.1
but it does explain the production processes better.
