Making a Real Lightsaber

Making a Real Lightsaber

There are lots of cool lightsaber replicas you can buy right now, but those ones just light up. The Hacksmith set about making a brightly glowing blade that can actually cut and burn things. Watch it heat up and start a fire at 12:38.

Forging Blade’s Sword

Forging Blade’s Sword

This replica of Blade’s sword proved to be one of Man at Arms: Reforged‘s toughest builds yet. It was their first time to make a sword blade entirely out of titanium, which isn’t as hard as steel but resists grinding like the vampire hunter resists sunlight.

Making a Sword with Thermite

Making a Sword with Thermite

While most of the videos on the Internet that involve thermite end up destroying stuff, The Backyard Scientist decided to use the extremely hot concoction to fire a crucible for casting a sword. The result isn’t the most attractive looking thing, but still an effective weapon.

Making Thor’s Ragnarok Swords

Making Thor’s Ragnarok Swords

In the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, the villain Hela destroys the god of thunder’s hammer, Mjölnir. Good thing Thor gets his hands on a pair of these thick alien swords. Man at Arms: Reforged replicated the blades via a CNC machine and good old forging.

Making Attack on Titan’s Sword

Making Attack on Titan’s Sword

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.

Making Stiff But Safe Foam Swords

Making Stiff But Safe Foam Swords

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.

Making Optimus Prime’s Sword

Making Optimus Prime’s Sword

Man At Arms: Reforged made a huge lemonade out of an even bigger lemon. Made of over 500 pieces, their scale model of Optimus Prime’s sword from Transformers: The Last Knight is their largest and most complicated build yet.

Making Wonder Woman’s Sword

Making Wonder Woman’s Sword

After creating a replica of Wonder Woman’s shield, Man at Arms: Reforged takes on the Amazon princess’ God Killer sword. From the pommel’s dragon scales to the patterns on the damascus steel edge, there’s a lot to take in about this build.

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.

Making a Tiny Katana

Making a Tiny Katana

Wielded by samurai (and The Walking Dead’s Michonne), the katana is one of the ultimate bladed weapons. Now learn to make your own mini razor-sharp katana thanks to BrainfooTV, who show us how to craft one with household tools. Take that, strawberry!

GoT: Valyrian Steel Swords

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

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

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.

Forging a Nodachi

Forging a Nodachi

Mat at Arms: Reforged and guest host Mark Dacascos – the Crying Freeman! – promote For Honor by making one of the swords featured in the game. This time, the show focused on the work that goes into making a sword’s collar, hand guard and handle.

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 Excalibur

Making Excalibur

Man at Arms: Reforged takes on what is perhaps the most famous sword of all time – King Arthur’s legendary Excalibur, as based on its appearance in the video game King of Avalon. It’s one of their most impressive builds, and the engraving alone is phenomenal.

Making Genji’s Dragonblade

Making Genji’s Dragonblade

Man at Arms: Reforged combined a forging technique from the ’30s with modern electronics to create a replica of the Dragonblade from Overwatch. They also made three shuriken to complete Genji’s arsenal. Ryūjin no ken o kurae! 

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

Man at Arms: Reforged make a replica of an Ulfberht sword, a 9th century sword found most frequently in northern Europe. Although it looks like a plain instrument of war, it requires an insane amount of time and skill to work with the blade’s material.

Forging Kennosuke’s Sword

Forging Kennosuke’s Sword

Man at Arms: Reforged proudly presents one of their favorite creations so far. It’s a replica of the katana wielded by Kuromukuro‘s protagonist Kennosuke. The sword was made from Japanese steel that was provided by the studio behind the anime, PA Works.
