Man at Arms
If you haven’t seen the YouTube series Man at Arms, you should check it out. It shows how Tony Swatton, a master blacksmith who has made weapons for countless movies, forges real weapons based on designs from pop culture. Whether he’s making something realistic, such as Jaime Lannister’s sword from Game of Thrones (below), or a crazy impractical weapon from anime or video games, it’s just a pleasure to watch a master at work. Here’s a playlist of the whole series.
