Man at Arms crafts Fire Emblem: Awakening’s Falchion

New, 2 comments

Craftsman and swordsmith Tony Swatton continues his recreation of iconic weapons with Chrom's Falchion of Fire Emblem: Awakening fame.

A blacksmith for more than 30 years, Swatton has created weapons for more than 200 feature films. To create the Fire Emblem sword, he first pulled a pattern offline for a paper template. Swatton then works on forging, griding and applying heat treatments before moving on to the sword's detailed hilt and pommel.

"[The Falchion has] been on my to-do list for awhile," Swatton said. " ... Chrom's Falchion Fire Emblem sword is actually a pretty elaborate build."

Watch the video above to see how Swatton crafts the blade's tricky ridges and center hole.

Swatton's past work includes the League of Legends Zenith Blade and Kratos' Blades of Chaos.
