Watch a Swordsmith Make a Real Life Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII

May 20, 2013

Have you ever dreamt of wielding Cloud’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII? Now a working, sharp and massive real life version exists, but swinging it around could destroy your back.

Swordsmith and prop maker Tony Swatton loves to make weapons from movies, comics and games, and this time around he assembled a whole team to make the Buster Sword, then he called in a daredevil friend to smash things with it, starting with bottles, moving to a chocobo-lookalike piñata, and then even a table.

I can’t say I would like to find myself in the way of one of those swings, but considering that the sword weighs between 75 and 80 pounds, I doubt I’d like to be the one doing the swings as well.

You can check out both the making and the finished result in the video below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
