What is the Hero of Time without his sword and shield?
The team of master forgers from the webseries Man At Arms: Reforged have been doing a weekly video of them making your favorite weapons from the arsenal of various video games. Yesterday (March 23), they released a video of them crafting and welding a Hylian Shield and Master Sword that are so sweet you’ll wish you had them yourself.
We’ve seen the plastic imitations before, but these guys at Man At Arms aren’t messing around. The video takes us through the meticulous process of designing, cutting, curving, embossing, and embellishing the iconic weapons from The Legend of Zelda. The final product, which includes an amber Triforce, isn’t just fan paraphernalia: it’s art.
You’ll know you’re a true Zelda fan if you get chills when they reveal the final product. No chance the bazaar in Kakariko Village sells a shield as nice as this. Now that’s some serious talent coming from Man At Arms; so happy to see that this medieval art form is alive and well.
Watch the Man At Arms team make a longsword Master Sword:
Even Link would be jealous of how incredible this handcrafted Hylian Shield and Master Sword are! Watch the video and be amazed…
