With the exception of Wesley Snipes, David S. Goyer and Sticky Fingaz from Onyx, I'm willing to bet that I have spent more time thinking about the Blade movie franchise than any man alive. I mean, just that vertical suplex at the end of Blade II alone has taken up a considerable percentage of my thoughts over the past 12 years. And yet, it never occurred to me to request that Man At Arms, the series of videos featuring master swordsmith Tony Swatton re-creating famous pop culture weapons that was last seen building a real-life Pokémon, take a shot at Blade's glaives.
Fortunately for everyone who enjoys seeing fictional weapons stabbing real-life soda bottles, several other people took the initiative on that one, and the result is that the world now has three brand-new razor-sharp vampire killin' weapons. Check out a video to see the process (and some gratuitous stabbing) below!
We've highlighted a few videos from Man At Arms, the web series where master swordsmith Tony Swatton recreates famous weaponry from movies and TV before, but to be honest, they're not usually my thing. Don't get me wrong, it's super neat to see the forging process that goes into recreating, say, Thor's hammer, and I can certainly appreciate the craftsmanship, but that's about it. Unless, of course, you tell me that they have made a real life Pokémon, in which case I am suddenly very interested.
That's what happens in the latest installment, where Swatton and his team recreate Honedge, the sentient sword that was introduced to gamers in PokémonX and Y, and it's pretty awesome. Check out the video below!
Marvel's fair-haired Odison is back in theaters with Thor: The Dark World, and that means that public interest in beating things to death with a magic hammer is at an all-time high, particularly for people who were already interested in fictional weaponry to begin with. Such is the case for Master Swordsmith Tony Swatton, star of the Man at Armsseries of web videos, who was deluged with requests to build a replica of Thor's hammer and obliged this week.
Now obviously, the only real way to build Mjölnir is to have the dwarves of Svartalfheim forge it from mystical Uru metal in a forge powered by the heat of a dying star and then imbue it with the Odinpower, but failing that, Swatton does a pretty decent job. Check out his work in the video below!
