Film 1 Sword Production
24 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.
Film 2 Armoured Vest; Production & Testing
8 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.
Film 3 Sword Manufacture
14 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.
