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.

Man at Arms: Reforged hammer, chisel, cast, and chisel some more (actually a lot more) to make an absolutely exquisite replica of Wonder Woman’s shield from Batman v Superman. We actually like it more than Cap’s shield now.

Spitball Blasterz

Spitball Blasterz

While you could chew up some tissue and blow it through a straw, we much prefer the idea of this toy blaster, which can fire up to 16 rounds of paper at your enemies without reloading. Unlike Paper Shooters’ Zombie Slayer, this weapon comes fully-assembled and ready to go.

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.

United Cutlery’s spiraling 13-1/2″ blade is definitely one of the more dangerous knives we’ve seen, but it sure looks awesome. It’s got a super-sharp piercing point, a lightweight fiberglass/nylon handle, and stainless hand guard and “skull crusher” pommel.

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!

The Littlest Shotgun

The Littlest Shotgun

(PG-13: Language) Ever wonder what the weensy shotgun from Killing Them Softly would do in real life? Kjaskaar created a ridiculously short-barreled shotgun to see exactly what damage it would do. Even if it is deadly, it’s not a particularly practical weapon.

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.

Deadly NERF Gun Mod

Deadly NERF Gun Mod

Backyard engineer Peter Sripol turned a NERF rifle into a souped-up airsoft gun with a fairly large barrel. Then he loaded the gun with all sorts of improvised projectiles, such as AA batteries, 6″ nails, and fireworks. This guy’s going to be just fine in the apocalypse.

How to Slice an Apple

How to Slice an Apple

Like many other makers, NightHawkInLight created a powerful air cannon. But he added a fun and unique accessory at its business end – interchangeable slicing blades which make quick work out of fruit and vegetables used as projectiles.

Shotgun Shell Thermos

The perfect thermal bottle for hunters and other firearms enthusiasts – this 25oz. insulated stainless steel container looks just like a giant 12 gauge shotgun shell. Guaranteed not to be filled with pellets and gunpowder.

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.

DIY Knife Upgrade

DIY Knife Upgrade

Carbide3D shows us how to use one of their cool desktop CNC machines to carve upgraded wood and metal parts for a cheap Milwaukee Fastback knife. It’s a great demonstration of how desktop fabrication tools can make quick work of otherwise difficult tasks.

Rocket Launcher.

Rocket Launcher.

Ahoy’s ongoing series about real life weapons and their roles in video games takes on the big daddy we all immediately run for in FPSes – the deadly rocket launcher. While it’s not exactly surgical in its approach, there’s no denying the effectiveness of this ranged explosive device.

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.

DIY Vacuum Cannon

DIY Vacuum Cannon

Even though it sounds like a sci-fi weapon, vacuum cannons are actually easy to build. The only “hard” part is sucking the air out of them to reduce the air pressure. NightHawkInLight made one using a 4″ diameter PVC pipe and a 3″ diameter end cap as its projectile.

Forging Kratos’ Axe

Forging Kratos’ Axe

Man at Arms: Reforged made a replica of Kratos’ axe from the upcoming God of War game. As is often the case, the seemingly simple weapon turned out to be a complicated build. They actually had a setback at the beginning, but they improvised and got it done.

DIY Popsicle Stick NERF Blaster

DIY Popsicle Stick NERF Blaster

Sure, you can buy a NERF blaster for less than $10, but there’s something rewarding about making your own stuff. Here, Astonishing Studios shows us how to make a working NERF gun using popsicle sticks, straws, a syringe, and an ample dose of hot glue.

Forging the Viking Dane Axe

Forging the Viking Dane Axe

After making a nodachi, Man at Arms: Reforged continues its For Honor theme by creating a real-life version of the impractical but imposing two-handed axe wielded by the game’s Raider class. It’s more likely to crush than cut.

Making a Sun Keeper

Making a Sun Keeper

Michael Cthulhu’s build videos are far more exhaustive than other weapon making videos, but we enjoyed being a fly on the wall in his metal shop, and hearing his him explain his thought process as he created a weighty replica of the Sun Keeper mace from Diablo III.

20-Shot Pinfire Revolver

20-Shot Pinfire Revolver

Forgotten Weapons examines a very special weapon. This ornate double-barrel handgun is not only covered with intricate gold inlay and engraving, it has 20 bullet chambers, and a really interesting firing mechanism. It ended up selling for $34,500 at auction.

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.

DIY Magnetic Catapult

DIY Magnetic Catapult

Using a spoon, some nuts and bolts, and a few strong Pot magnets, Magnetic Games shows us how to build a desktop catapult which can launch projectiles with the push of a thumb. The more powerful the magnets, the further it will throw objects. Original design here.
