Blacksmith Creates A Real-Life Replica Of The Pokémon Honedge



Blacksmith Tony Swatton has a webshow on YouTube, titled “Man At Arms,” where he recreates weapons from fiction, encompassing movies, anime and videogames. In the past, Swatton has recreated the Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts, Cloud’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII, Chrom’s Falchion from Fire Emblem: Awakening and more.


In the latest episode of the show, however, Swatton makes a real-life replica of the Pokémon Honedge. Given that Honedge is a sword himself, his design fits right in with Swatton’s usual line of work.
