Man at Arms Recreates Movie Weapons
May 5, 2013

If you’re interested in how comic book and other fantasy creations might work in the real world, you’ll want to try the YouTube series Man at Arms, in which blacksmith Tony Swatton, who’s experienced in making weapons for movies, tries recreating all kinds of famous weapons, from Batman’s batarangs (from sharpened steel) to He-Man’s sword and even Oddjob’s hat! The latest episode features Captain America’s shield (done in layers, not paint), as shown here:

There’s a lot of “I’m doing this because it’s cool!” to the five-minute episodes, which makes for some impressive viewing. Especially at the end, when they use the newly created weapons to mess stuff up.
