Blacksmith and Man At Arms internet show star Tony Swatton has recreated Sora's Keyblade from the Kingdom Hearts video game franchise. Swatton recreated the blade in his latest episode based on online images and references.
According to Man At Arms' opening dialogue, Swatton has been a blacksmith for over 30 years and created weapons and armor for over 200 feature films, such as Pirates of the Carribean and Blade. The life-size keyblade is about 36 inches (about 91 centimeters) long and made of steel and aluminium. Swatton also sharpened the "blade," creating replica that is also functional as a weapon.
Disney and Square Enix created the Kingdom Hearts crossover action role-playing game in 2002. The English version of the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX high-definition port will be released in North America this fall.
