Man at Arms creates Kratos sword Blades of Chaos

YouTube blacksmith armorer Man at Arms' newest project is Kratos' Blades of Chaos sword from God of War.

Man at Arms is a video show about Tony Swatton's attempts to smith up blades based on fictional artifacts. Earlier this year he fashioned a sword from League of Legends. The Kratos blade was crafted using 4130 Chromaly Steel with the hilt modeled using Chavant oil-based clay, molded with silicon rubber ands cast in bronze.

"Kratos' sword is ginormously huge so I shortened it down so that it would be wieldable," said Swatton, who has created weapons as props for hundreds of movies. "It's almost something you could carry."
