First Video of Saber Fencing

Via Milo we get this fascinating video of two athletes going at each other with sabers.

It seems that the video was taken from a flip book that was printed circa 1880. Looks great!

Take a look, everyone. 19th Century media translated into video we see on The Internet. Why didn’t I just embed the YouTube video here? Because the guy who worked on bringing us this short video deserves some traffic.

Anyone who doesn’t think this is neat as all get out has no sense of wonder.
