LEGO Buster Sword

LEGO Buster Sword

We’ve seen a deadly replica of Cloud’s weapon of choice. Here’s a life-size replica that’s less threatening but still backbreaking. ZaziNombies used about 2,000 LEGO pieces to make this 6ft, 8lb replica. Someone teach him how to hold it.

Forging the Pirate’s Cutlass

Forging the Pirate’s Cutlass

In one of Man at Arms: Reforged‘s coolest episodes yet, they made three vastly different cutlasses, each made by a different craftsman. Matt’s blade looks lovely as expected, but John and Bill’s hilts are as flashy as they come.

Making Gamora’s Godslayer

Making Gamora’s Godslayer

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.

GoT: Valyrian Steel Swords

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.

Forging Ned Stark’s Ice

Forging Ned Stark’s Ice

Man at Arms: Reforged finally got around to making a replica of one of their favorite swords – Ned Stark’s Valyrian steel executioner’s sword, Ice. Like its last owner, the sword is straightforward but more than enough to get the job done.

Making a Cane Sword

Sit back and enjoy as Jimmy Diresta uses a slab of damascus steel and sticks of walnut wood to craft a cool cane with a rippled sword blade concealed in its handle. We love the locking mechanism he built, and watching it go from square to round is tremendously satisfying.

Forging Yasuo’s Blade

Forging Yasuo’s Blade

Man at Arms: Reforged made a replica of the Cancer Nameless Blade, the oversized katana wielded by the infamous League of Legends character Yasuo. Seeing authentic blade patterns being made never ceases to amaze us.

Katana Slicing Master

Martial arts and sword expert Isao Machii recently attempted to break the record for the most martial arts sword cuts in a minute, as he slashed through sections of straw mats faster than Michonne takes off zombie heads. Watch the video to see how many he sliced.

Making the Sword of Altair

Making the Sword of Altair

Man at Arms: Reforged went through a ton of grinding, sanding and polishing to make a real life version of Altäir’s sword from the Assassin’s Creed series. The eagle-themed weapon was a pain to create, but it turned out great in the end.

Making Genji’s Dragonblade

Making the Sword of Gryffindor

Making the Sword of Gryffindor

Man at Arms: Reforged didn’t have a Sorting Hat, so they had to make a replica of Godric Gryffindor’s sword the hard way. But it’s worth it just for that marvelous silver handle. It’s amazing how much finesse is involved in making lethal implements.

Making a Warhammer 40K Chainsword

Making a Warhammer 40K Chainsword

Man at Arms: Reforged celebrates its 100th episode by going all out to make one of the most fan-requested and complex weapons, Warhammer 40,000’s Blood Angel chainsword, complete with a fully operational chainsaw with oversize teeth. For the Emperor!

Forging an Ulfberht Sword

Forging an Ulfberht Sword
