New, 10 comments

Man at Arms' Master swordsmith, Tony Swatton, recreated Cloud's Buster sword from Final Final Fantasy 7.

The video above demonstrates Swatton in action as he discusses the hefty blade's creation process. According to the video's description, he uses high-speed belt grinders, scorching furnaces and pounding power hammers. At the end of the video, the weapon is used to obliterate full soda bottles, pinatas, watermelons and vases.

The Swordsmith recently conducted a Reddit AMA where he talked about his favorite weapon to reproduce (Gimli's Axe and Raphael's Sais), how he got into his line of work and how he cut off his nose while polishing a piece of gothic armor.

Swatton has created Finn's Golden Sword from Adventure Time, Sora's Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts, a Klingon Bat'leth, Plasma Cutting Batarangs featured in the Dark Night and He-Man's Sword from Masters of the Universe. He has created many more iconic weapons, which are available to check out on the AweMeChannel.
