Man at Arms: Reforged is a video series on YouTube that tasks a team of blacksmiths and craftsmen with making some of the most outrageous swords and weapons from pop culture.
They’ve done a lot of crazy creations like the Zelda Double Helix Sword, but the latest video sees one of their biggest swords ever: Guts’ Pre-Dragonslayer Sword.
While I typically have some fondness for the weapons created on the series, I must admit I am not familiar with the Berserk manga series, but I do have an appreciation for the creation of knives. (I do understand that this is actually a Pre-Dragonslayer sword and not the actual Dragonslayer sword wielded by Guts.)
For me, these Man at Arms videos from AWE me have always been more about the process because we get an inside look on how the weapons are made. In this video, we even get the bonus of seeing them create and scavenge for new ways to do things because the sword is so massive.
They start things off by using a 138-pound per yard railroad track as the basis. They finish with a sword that doesn’t just border on impracticality but exceeds it by a mile. Still, the outcome is impressive.
