Woman at Arms.
Forge, impale. Forge, impale. Repeat.Read More
An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
We all want to be able to wield a real lightsaber (right?), but the technology just isn't available yet. The next best thing would have to be a badass katana with a lightsaber handle. That's exactly what the guys behind Man at Arms: Reforged have built, and it's incredible. You can see the whole process in the video.Read More
Man at Arms: Reforged Combined All Four Ninja Turtle Weapons, Should Have No Trouble Defeating Shredder
If you can mutate turtles, it's only fair to mutate their weapons too.
Man at Arms: Reforged is known for making insane weapons from culture, but this is some next level business. They've combined all four of the Ninja Turtles' iconic weapons into one katasaichuckbo, and basically provided instructions for every step of the process. Probably don't try this at home.Read More
You guys are so cute, I could just maul you to death.
Mathematical! Jake's sword in Aventure Time is adorably ineffectual - the hilt is longer than the blade! - but that's not going to stop master swordsmith Tony Swatton from tackling it. Watch as Swatton forges Jake's sword from scratch, then uses it in slow-motion to destroy stuff like watermelons (because Adventure Time doesn't always make sense).Read More
I have a present for you... it's a gigantic sword.
In Final Fantasy VII, they love their giant swords - and master swordsmith Tony Swatton loves making them! In Man At Arms, Swatton's already tackled Cloud's huge Buster sword, so - naturally - he had to complete the set with Sephiroth's Masamune. Seriously, though, Sephi and Cloud have to be compensating for something with these swords, right?Read More
Slow motion makes everything cooler. Even Finnick.
Finnick looks pretty tough in the new Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, using his District 4 talents to throw around a trident like it's the most dangerous weapon in Panem. Master swordsmith Tony Swatton decided to make his own version of Finnick's trident, and then see what kind of damage it could do.Read More
I'd be careful headbanging with those things on, though.
Man at Arms is a delightful web series about a blacksmith who makes weapons from famous science fiction and fantasy franchises at the Internet's behest. This week, propmaster Tony Swatton indulged our insatiable need for badass weaponry by creating a set of replica Wolverine claws out of steel. No, they aren't retractable, but they can slice completely through milk cartons and upright cucumbers with basically no effort. Man, that is awesome. And they use CGI on the movies? That's really disappointing.Read More
Oh, hell yes. Tony Swatton is a blacksmith by trade, and he's made weapons for scads of movies and TV shows. Swords for Game of Thrones, cutlasses for Pirates of the Caribbean, Batarangs for Batman, and so on. But now he's turned his craft-- and his YouTube series, Man At Arms -- to the ultimate weapon of the universe. Swatton has forged He-Man's Sword of Power.Read More
