Man at Arms tackles Halo's Energy Sword

New, 2 comments

The latest episode of Man at Arms, a web series featuring the work of master swordsmith Tony Swatton, demonstrates how to create the Energy Sword made famous by Halo.

Swatton first lays out the sword's design as a paper template; the blacksmith then crafts two separate blades for the weapon before joining them together. The weapon is trimmed, taped and tempered as Swatton continues craft. Watch the video above to see Swatton walk through the entire process and try out the final product.

Swatton has already created a number of video game-inspired weapons, including the Falchion from Fire Emblem: Awakening, the League of Legends Zenith Blade and Kratos' Blades of Chaos.
