YouTube’s resident blacksmith, Tony Swatton aka “Man At Arms,” is an expert in the field that has done everything from movie props and equipment, to his recent pastime of recreating various weapons from the universe of video games, such as from Fire Emblem Awakening and God of War. His latest creation? The infamous Energy Sword from Halo.

In the latest episode of the “Man At Arms” YouTube series, Swatton breaks down how he was able to make a legitimately awesome version of the Energy Sword from the Halo series. While it may be out of metal and other materials instead of pure energy, it’s still pretty awesome, nonetheless.
