Man at Arms: Reforged made a life-size replica of the 3D Maneuver Gear Sword from Attack on Titan. They didn’t make the vertical maneuvering equipment, but the sword’s box cutter-like blades can be replaced, just like in the series.
Steel weapons are badass, but they’re not safe or kid-friendly, and they could get you in trouble at conventions or other public places. Foam swords are cheaper to make and easier to shape, but how do you make them rigid? Odin Makes has one answer: graphite golf clubs.
Man at Arms: Reforged made a replica of the Godslayer, the weapon of choice of Gamora, the assassin-turned-Guardian of the Galaxy. While the Godslayer’s fictional version has a detachable knife, Man at Arms chose to make it a layered but fixed piece for stability.
In A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones, weapons made from an ancient and magical metal known as Valyrian steel can destroy the undead. Alt Shift X lists some of these precious weapons as well as their current owners. Now we wish we had something worth naming.
