This blacksmith can build any video game weapon

59 second read


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.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
