Breaking Misconceptions: What Sound Does Drawing a Sword Make?

I never realized it until I saw this video, but Hollywood does love the "SHING!" noise that "all swords" make when being drawn.  As someone who owns a sword (a stage quality hand and a half, or bastard, sword), I have yet to draw it to that distinctive sound.  Almost like it doesn't happen that way.

I've checked out a number of Nikolas' videos, and all make interesting points on the mechanics of ancient warfare.  There's even one describing bad guy aim in Imperial Stormtroopers.  I'd recommend giving them a watch.  If you appreciate the videos as much as I do, be sure to visit his site and tell him so.
