Man At Arms: Reforged took a break from replicating fictional weapons to create a historical one based on the Dandao manual. The 400-year-old Chinese swordsmanship guide calls for a long sword that can go up against cavalry and spearmen.
THE BEST Swords
Man at Arms: Reforged made a replica of the highly coveted sword from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It may not look as imposing or complex as the other weapons they forged, but it took a lot of time and finesse to create the details on both the blade and the guard.
Man at Arms: Reforged finally takes on one of their fans’ long-requested weapons: Dark Souls’ Greatsword of Artorias. The divine weapon is like a Gothic column, eye-catching in terms of both size and detail. There’s no way a normal man can one-hand or roll with this beast.
Adam Savage made a life-size replica of one of the swords that Hellboy used in the comics. The 48″ sword is made of plywood, Bondo, carbon fiber tubes, aluminum tape, some spray paint and a plushie. You can skip to 26:37 for the finished sword and the post-credits time lapse.
We’ve seen lots of fancy “making of” videos from blacksmiths making awesome metal weapons. But it turns out that with a mix of frozen water and layered toilet paper, you can make a sword that can also smash helpless fruits – at least until the sun melts it.
Nikken Cutlery sells a line of scissors that look like Japanese swords. They have blades lined with hamon, handles that look like wrapped hilts and scabbards for storage. The top-of-the-line model is based on the sword of the warlord Oda Nobunaga and costs over $300.
