Blacksmith Tony Swatton in his Youtube series “Man at Arms” routinely forges video game weapons as requested by fans. He's forged assassin wristblades, Cloud's Buster Sword, and the blade of evil's bane, the Master Sword. Now he has created an often requested weapon that has struck fear into the heart of many a gamer in Halo multiplayer – the energy sword.

Even though in-game the sword is made of energy, it still looks mighty dangerous in steel form. And unlike Master Chief, the weapon testers have to hold this bad boy with two hands. Check out the creation of the weapon and see the sword in action in the video below.
