Man At Arms Forges Real-Life Greatsword Of Artorias From Dark Souls

by Connor Trinske on Apr 05, 2016 at 07:48 AM

YouTube's most famous blacksmiths have recreated yet another video game sword in real life. This time it's the huge greatsword belonging to Knight Artorias from the original Dark Souls' DLC Artorias of the Abyss 

All the details of the giant sword are painstakingly reproduced in the video, which you can watch below. Every member of the team took on multiple roles and worked plenty of hours to perform all the necessary steps.

Man At Arms has received quite a few requests for them to forge this blade in the past, but they've had to turn it down in previous seasons due to its expensive intricacy and the sheer manpower required to make it. Bandai Namco stepped in to sponsor this particular episode and get the sword forged as part of its promotional campaign for the upcoming Dark Souls III. To find out more about the game itself, you can read up on it in our coverage hub.
