Swordsmen make a working version of Bloodborne's saw cleaver

Man At Arms makes its first trick weapon

The smiths and machinists of Man At Arms have finally tackled Bloodborne.The latest episode of the web series, Man At Arms Reforged, sees the weaponmakers recreating the game's iconic saw cleaver trick weapon in real life. And, yes, it transforms, thanks to some impressive forging and engineering.

Bloodborne's saw cleaver was constructed from a piece of railroad track — fittingly, from the same hunk of metal that Man At Arms used to forge Guts' sword from Berserk — and, as such, looks really, really heavy. It makes you appreciate the wrist strength of Bloodborne's hunters, since the real world version of the saw cleaver looks nigh impossible to one-hand.
