Overwatch: Watch Master Blacksmiths Forge Genji’s Katana in Real Life

on November 28, 2016 1:20 PM

Overwatch is one of the most popular games of the moment, and Genji’s katana is pretty awesome, so it was just a matter of time before the good folks at ManĀ at Arms made a real life replica of it.

And in fact they did, as you can see in the video below.

Since it’s a Katana, of course Ilya Alekseyev does most of the core work, even if this time around he uses a different and rather interesting technique to forge the blade.

On top of that, we also get some bonus Shuriken, so what’s not to love? Definitely another great build.

In the meanwhile, Overwatch fans have been waiting for the pretty inevitable Christmas event, and you can check out two recent creations from the folks at Baltimore Knife and Sword here and here.
