He Forged Fire Emblem's Falchion, Then He ... You Get the Idea

Video game smithy Tony Swatton has, for the past year, forging blades from Kingdom Hearts, the Legend of Zelda, God of War and even Adventure Time. Closing out 2013, he tackles a project fans have been clamoring for all year: Chrom's Falchion from Fire Emblem: Awakening.

This took a lot of work as Tony explains, mostly because of the bronze casting that had to be done for the sword's pommel and hilt. The Falchion's signature eyelet in the center needed beveling work on top of what already was a painstaking job grinding out the blade.

What did Tony's shop do after all that hard work? Well, you can probably guess—they chopped through a bunch of stuff and shot it in luxurious slow-mo. Enjoy.
