While it would be awesome to include this spear or any other of his recreations in your next cosplay outfit, it might be easier for the average non-professional blacksmith to stick to paper mâché and plastic.


Since it's a functional weapon there's no way you'd be able to carry it around at a con anyway. Laughing

I'm glad he did this weapon though! This is probably one of my favorite shows on YouTube.

Interesting. I kind of wish it was a longer video that went into better depth about the crafting process without all those jump cuts....But I understand that they have to market these things to the American consumer which has the attention span of a squirrel.

Was that Justin Rojas at the end there?

Yeah, it was. I think Funimation has photos of the test swings on their website or something.

As an FMA fan, I strongly approve!

If there was ever a live action FMA film coming out someday, I would love to see this on the screen!
