See Warcraft's fabled Gorehowl axe chop stuff up in real life

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Gorehowl is the epic-level battleaxe that the demon Prince Malchezaar drops in the raid on Karazhan in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Now it exists in real life, thanks to Tony Swatton, the master maker of other video game arms.

Blizzard commissioned this item and the video above showing its creation. Skip to 6:48 if you want to get to the final reveal and the obligatory smashing, slicing and chopping of smashy, slicy and choppy stuff.

For more from the Man at Arms series see these replicas of swords from Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 10, Fire EmblemGod of War and Halo as well as a re-creation of the hidden Phantom Blade used in Assassin's Creed Unity.
