The Men at Arms folks can retire now. Not only did they faithfully recreate the blazing sword from Voltron, but they took “blazing” in the best, most literal way, in the sense that the blade itself is always enveloped by flames. It seems extremely dangerous but it’s also so damn cool.
We’ve really appreciated the level of detail that the guys behind Man at Arms: Reforged puts into their creations. The blacksmiths have gone and done some really impressive work with their latest creation, the Great Sword of Artorias from Dark Souls III.
Lets clear up a couple of things: Yes, I know they’re called chakram, and that they’re real weapons that come from India. I also know they don’t fly back to you when thrown, or separate into weird knives.
We’ve really liked watching Man At Arms construct some epic replica weapons in the past, and now they’ve gone and created Orcrist, from Peter Jackson’s Hobbit Trilogy.
I think this is the most impressive video that Man At Arms has ever done, and that’s saying a lot since they’ve recreated all the coolest weapons from TV shows and movies in real life. But there’s something ridiculous impressive about making a katana (stylized like the one from Kill Bill) the traditional old school…
Recreating the Chitauri Scepter, also known as Loki’s bad ass, brain controlling staff from The Avengers, in real life might be the most impressive build that Man At Arms has ever done. The detail is unbelievable: melting glass and glass casting to create the right infinity stone, perfectly cutting out the design of…
Man at Arms is at its best when it makes real life versions of the weapons we see in our favorite movies, TV shows, comic books and video games. Turning something that lived in our dreams into something in real life is always fun. This video has the guys artfully making Arya's Needle sword and nailing every little…
Making a real life version of Link's iconic Hylian Shield from the Legend of Zelda may be the most impressive weapon Man at Arms: Reforged has ever made. It required a perfect design, a lot of grunt work in curving the metal sheet, expert embossing and basically melting pieces of metal together to form the final…
Captain America's shield is as iconic as comic book superhero weapons get but that doesn't mean there's no room for improvement. Man at Arms: Reforged decided to give it an upgrade by turning the shield into throwing ninja stars. Captain America should definitely use them for his next movie.
We're never going to get to hold honest-to-Glob lightsabers in our lifetimes, but the "Man at Arms: Reforged" weaponsmith team have given us the next best thing: A Lightsaber katana, a fully functional Japanese blade with a beautiful lightsaber hilt.
I'm still holding out hope for light sabers in the future but with our world's technological limitations and silly allocation of resources, the most beautiful deadly sword-type weapon we can create without lasers might be this mashup of a lightsaber and katana made by Man At Arms: Reforged.
What's the best weapon from TMNT? Is it Leonardo's katana, Raphael's sais, Michelangelo's nunchuks or Donatello's bo staff? Or maybe it's none of them because it's actually all of them. Watch Man at Arms: Reforged combine all four weapons into one insane ninja weapon.
The "Man at Arms" webseries has apparently run out of awesome movie/TV/animation-inspired weapons to make, so now they're just combining them. First up? "Batman's Wolverine claws." As it turns out, they're as awesome as they are absurd, and they're completely @#$%ing absurd.
The ever creative guys of Man At Arms: Reforged created Wolverine claws that Batman would wear, which means Wolverine's blades have been replaced with super sharp batarangs and the whole rig is armored and blacked out just for the dark knight.
Though it's not forged from Valyrian steel, master swordsmith Tony Swatton made a pretty perfect real life version of Jon Snow's Longclaw sword from Game of Thrones. The sword's pommel has a nice ivory replica of Ghost, the hilt is exquisitely knotted and the blade is as ginormous and intimidating as it should be.
Hollywood swordsmith Tony Stratton is back with a new installment of "Man-at-Arms," the web series where he recreates TV and cinema's greatest weapons. Today, Tony shows how you can make a Batarang, straight out of the Nolan Bat-movies, right in your own home!
