Answer: Kinski suffered from mental illness for most of his life. He was given to bouts of unprovoked outbursts and violence, He was eventually diagnosed with psychopathy (antisocial personality disorder). On movie sets, he was notorious for being physically and verbally abusive to the crew, who generally hated him. The sword incident was just one of many. On the production of this film, director Werner Herzog carried a gun on him in the event he had to protect himself or others. Kinski was flat-out crazy. He was eventually unable to get any work as an actor.

Agreed. I forget what film set it was but Kinski also once fired a rifle at a bunch of crew members and blew a guy's finger off. He was unstable.

It was also Aguirre, The Wrath Of God. Kinski was irritated by the noise from a hut where cast and crew were playing cards and, out of anger, repeatedly fired a Winchester rifle into it. One of the bullets took the tip of an unknown extra's finger off.
