    These people make some wicked replicas, check out their channel, it’s worth your time… and it’s every cosplayer’s wet dream XD

    • Freakmasta

      too bad you can’t take it to cons or you’ll be flagged for possessing a deadly weapon.

      • MrJechgo

        True, but still…

        It works for private out-of-con photoshoots though ^_^

        • Darkwing7

          keep a tight sheathe on xD

  • Yan Zhao

    I wonder what these people do with the weapons they make. I mean, they could totally make a killing off these by auctioning them off to collectors.

    • David García Abril

      They can’t do that due to copyright issues.

  • Kornelious

    Man that is one freaking awesome replica sword! Makes you think how cool it is that Kirito swings the thing around like a toy :D

    Also who knew Nathan was a Sword Art fan :P

  • TheGunheart

    Eludicator is one hell of a snazzy sword. They did such a beautiful job on it I almost couldn’t look when they were testing it.

  • Shippoyasha

    Might be their best work yet. Just makes me tingly as an SAO fan.

  • Daniel Rossevelt

    I’m so jealous, i would kill for that sword KILL!!

  • Learii

    I buy that sword lol

  • John Smith

    Not a fan of the novel or anime, but that is one sexy sword

  • It’s amazing that they can do an amazing job for things like this but they screwed up the buster sword

    • Jason Ryer

      the sword was too heavy so the metal cracked. It happens.

      • There’s a list of thing wrong with that thing but I will say he made it to big he for some reason he decided to put a long piece of metal in the middle of the “blade” to add an edge horrible paint job and the way he acted I doubt he even wanted to work on it if that was was the case he shouldn’t have even done it

        • Jason Ryer

          He makes them proportional to scale. So blame advent children if it looks to big.Even if you sculpted in a 3d package and sculpting tool and sent that and texture files to a tiawan 3d printing shop youd still have almost a 4 foot+ sword that weighs over 80 lbs. There are issues with it though I agree.He made a wicked keyblade so i dont think he didnt want to do it.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I still want to see them make Excalibur; they could put a speaker in it that shouts “Fools!” every time the sword is swung x3

  • Darkwing7

    Im not a fan of kirito himself or sword art online,but that sword they replicated is badass

    • My thoughts exactly.

    • God

      I need it… I must have it… and i WILL steal it…

  • God

    I have a dream of one day becoming a blacksmith apprentice… at first i will suck, but eventually, due to my masters teachings and sheer dedication, i will manage to make a masterpiece, in order to prove to myself and to the world that i have surpassed my master, i will challange him to a duel wich he will refuse, angry, i will throw his best sword at him and start atacking myself, with no other choice he will start to fight me, but in a very defensive style, my anger will keep rising and my swings and thrusts will become more ferocious, but my master will stick to dodging and parring, he will further provoke me by pointing ou the clear difference in our skills, he will tell me how i have let myself be swallowed by anger and will proceed to disarm me, telling me to go and never come back.

    For the next 4 years i will live only for my sword, training day and night, until the moment comes when i finally feel ready for a rematch, i will go back to my master’s only to find out that he passed on from an illness a few weeks ago, filled with regret, anger, and the burning desire for a worhty enemy i will travel the land as a sellsword in search for stronger opponents, but none shall come, until i find a young boy who shows a lot of promise, and take him under my wing, i will train the boy for years and we will both live as sellswords.

    Our sparring matches become more even with each winter, and he will soon reach my level, but he lacks motivation… so one day, i notice we are being followed, but remain silent and comment on how he hasn’t been to his hometown for a long time, and we decide that it shall be our next destination, when we arrive he is tired and after a warm meeting with his family, he goes to sleep… but when he wakes up the village is in flames, and i am nowhere to be seen, scared, he will wander around seeing corpses everywhere, at first he refuses to believe it was me, but the only surviving villager tells him of how a foreigner killed everyone and ran away… angered he will spent the next years seeking revenge, and becoming a better swordsman.

    Years later, we meet again in the field of battle, he was hired by the local government and i was fighting for the revolution, he is of course not happy to meet me, but ignorant of his feelings i will warmly try to reach him, to wich he unseathes his sword and points it at me, thinking of it nothing more than a single sparring session, i take my sword and we clash for hours… i smile at seeing how my pupil has become stronger, and the match becomes more and more intense by the second, i soon realise he has surpassed me, and in the excitement of battle i forget everything, and go with killing intent on my eyes… but the next moment everything turns red, i feel myself being impaled and my pupil yelling some words i can’t quite make out as i fade into oblivion…

    Seeing his revenge fulfilled, he falls to the ground and breaks into tears of happiness, but this will not last long… a malevolent stranger appears in front of me, he tells him how he saw and heard everything, and tells him i was not responsible for what happened to his town, that i had been suffering from amnesia for the past few years, and it all started when i took a hit in the head trying to save his village from some assasins sent to kill the mayor and burn the village, and how i had falled into the river and survived only by luck… my pupil asks him how he knows all this, and he says it’s simple, as he was the one who burned the village. Deep into despair the tears of joy from my student become tears of sorrow, and unable to go on, he commits sepukku…

    Was this in any way related to the post? No. Was there a reason behind my enormous rambling? Just felt like it. Here, have some potatoes for your troubles.

    • MakoSoldier7

      um if you had amnesia after trying to save the village and falling in the river, how would you have remembered your pupil, let alone warmly greet him,

      • God

        You know people can recover from Amnesia, don’t you? Maybe i should have specified it however.

        • MakoSoldier7

          just figured if you were going to take the time to write a short in the spotlight of the internet you would be more protective of potential plot holes.

          • God

            It’s not a plot hole when it has an easy explanation and doesn’t contradict anything else, but i will keep it mind for future reference.

  • Warboss Aohd

    been requesting him make a Lizard Clan Gride (Suikoden 3.)

  • Daiyus

    Still waiting for him to make the rathalos katana (monster hunter)

  • keithmaxx

    Maybe he should forge Travis’ ‘sword’ from No More Heroes. :D

  • Demeanor

    No way around it, the awesome guy’s TRUE test will always be… Gatsu’s Dragonslayer! XD
    Mmm now that I think about it, one of the grigori weapons would be SUPER cool, like Dragon’s Bite for instance, or the Dragon’s Dogma itself.'s_Bite

  • Masa

    A sword i doubt he could create *the Gunblade from FFVIII*

    • God

      Why? He would probably need some help if he wants to make it functional however, since i doubt he knows how to make guns.

  • shadowind

    I wish he could make a replica of Elsydeon from Phantasy Star IV.

  • David García Abril

    It would be awesome if they made the Dark Repulser next week so we have the pair. lol

    • God

      Extra points if we see someone actually using them, a a black longcoat is optional.

  • Aristides

    It would be awesome if they made swords from Fate/Stay Night, XP.
