Tony Swatton is a blacksmith and Hollywood's resident swordmaker; "Man-at-Arms" is a new web series that covers Swatton as recreates movie and TV weapons, from hunks of steel to intricate, beautiful, and completely usable weapons, beginning with Jaime Lannister's sword from Game of Thrones (FYI, he's not Game of Thrones' official blacksmith — that's someone else — he's just recreating the sword from the show for this video. Although the video doesn't exactly go out of its way to explain this(. Anyways, watch as Stratton makes Jaime Lannister's sword through a mix of modern tools and traditional blacksmithing, and then puts it through its paces (including cutting through a car windshield).
