This blacksmith can build any video game weapon

BusterSword

Man, I love me movie and video game props. Unfortunately, my bank account feels the exact opposite about my creepy passion for inanimate objects. What’s a guy to do? Build the stuff yourself? Well, that’s exactly what this skilled blacksmith has done.

Propmaster Tony Swatton has been in the business of forging iconic weapons for many years now, and has recently been tapped to create a few that were deemed fictional at best. The latest project of his that has hot the web, is a reproduction of the Orcish battleaxe from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It’s not just great viewing. It’s educational!

You can watch it above, or alongside a few other weapons that he forged on the Awe Me YouTube channel. Alternatively, you can scroll down and see some more of my favourites, such as the Buster Sword from Final Fantasy, the Sword of Omens from Thundercats (HOOOOOOOOO!) and the blade wielded by Prince Adam in He-Man.

Now that’s a knife.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

  • Ultimo_Cleric N7

    Make me a lightsabre. ^^

  • RinceWind

    This guy rocks on so many levels I want to be his apprentice!

    • ElNicko

      teach me your ways master blacksmith.

    • Sir Twakkus

      Its crazy ne! I really want to get into old methods of manufacturing. Milling, turning and smithing (is that even a word?) is so much more rewarding than just programming a CNC and letting the machine do all the work.

      • RinceWind

        It is indeed a word! I would love to get my hands dirty with that stuff. Very few iron mongers around these days. Way more satisfying hitting something with a HAMMER than fiddling about with a CMS.

        • Sir Twakkus

          Lol, talk about stress relieve! My boss still known one guy who still uses a hammer and anvil to do metal work. Very very few actual artisans left in SA. Some of them actually earn more than engineers because of the scarcity of their skill. Even this guy in the video is probably over 50.

  • Trevor Davies

    Silly hand weapons, where’s the guy who can make an ion cannon? :D
