Inspired by a weapon in the RPG Genshin Impact, Ilya and Matt of That Works created their biggest sword yet. They crafted the hefty claymore-style weapon using traditional bladesmithing techniques. The two-handed sword has an enormous angled blade, and an ornate handle with a gleaming red glass sphere a its center.
Awesome That Works
The guys from That Works show off the build process for another awesome weapon replica. Matt and Ilya turn their attention to the ornate Dagger of Death’s Flowers from Resident Evil Village. Carving that handle from a solid block of aluminum looked like a ton of work.
The coiled sword in Dark Souls III is one of the coolest fantasy swords we’ve seen. Aleksey from Bellerophon Studios demonstrates a number of classic blacksmithing techniques to bring this awe-inspiring twisted blade to life. Matt from That Works provides the informative narration.
Sometimes, the blacksmiths at That Works like to make tools and weapons by recycling old metal. In this episode of their “From This to That” series, they take a big old link of a ship’s anchor chain, and transform it into a beautiful hammer with engraved detailing and a copper, silver, and gold inlay.
