I just learned that master sword-maker, Jody Samson, passed away in his studio on Dec. 27th 2008.
Many of you may not know Jody Samson by name but I guarantee you have seen his work...
Samson was the designer and maker of Conan's sword (and Conan's father's sword) in the original Conan the Barbarian movie. Not many people this day and age can call themselves a master swordsmith, and now the world is missing one more. But we thank him for the great contribution he made to the Conan mythos.
