The lights are on
Ubisoft's For Honor released this past week. The game's unique world where samurais, knights, and vikings collide makes for a mix of interesting close-combat weapons. YouTube show Man At Arms: Reforged, a video series that builds replicas of pop-culture weapons, has recently teamed up with Ubisoft to forge real-life versions of For Honor's Viking Dane Axe and Nodachi Sword.
The Viking Dane Axe is wielded by the Raider faction of vikings, and the katana-style blade the Nodachi Sword is used by the Kensei samurai faction.
The Dane Axe is a two-handed weapon that is both massive and deadly. In the video below, the Man at Arms team shows how it can easily break apart a cement block. The Nodachi Sword is a narrow but long blade, and Man at Arms puts an incredible amount of detail in its creation. For example, the team smears clay delicately on the blade to prevent chipping during combat.
Check out the videos for yourself below.
Man At Arms has forged several other impressive video game weapons, such as the Greatsword Of Artorias from Dark Souls and the iron helmet from Skyrim. You can also read our favorable review of For Honor by heading here.
