Hollywood Blacksmith Recreates Sephiroth's Sword from Final Fantasy VII
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Hollywood blacksmith and prop expert Tony Swatton has forged one of video game's most iconic swords, Sephiroth's Masamune from Final Fantasy VII. In his video for the weekly web series Man at Arms, he shows his forging and assembly process, along with explanations for his steps.
It's certainly possible to buy replica Masamune blades elsewhere for cosplay and display purposes, but it's likely they weren't crafted with quite the loving care and expertise of Swatton's.
By the way, if you want to check out some of his other video game and anime blades, he also has videos for Cloud's Buster sword from FFVII, Ichigo's Zangetsu sword from Bleach, and even Sora's Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts... if that even counts as a blade. Check out the full list of videos here.
