God of War: Kratos’ Sword Recreated on Man At Arms [VID]

In the latest episode of Man At Arms, master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges one of Kratos’ Blades of Chaos from God of War.

The Chaos Blade is “ginormously huge” — the technical term, of course — so Swatton scaled it down to a size that can actually be wielded by a human being. The master smith explains that the sword Arnold Schwarzenegger swung around in the original Conan movie weighed 8 lb. The Chaos Blade, upon initial forging, weighed a whopping 14 lb. before Swatton and his team trimmed it down to 7 lb. Just the pommel weighed 50-60 lb. before they hollowed it out.

Check out the video:

I was surprised at how cleanly that blade sliced through that watermelon.

What sword would you like to see Swatton forge?
