Every other Monday, one bold blacksmith makes metallurgic magic on the YouTube series Man at Arms. That man is Tony Swatton, and this week, he has set his sights on Elric’s Spear, the iconic weapon wielded by short-tempered, steel-limbed blonde boy wonder Edward Elric in the Japanese anime/manga series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Watch in awe as Swatton and his team transform raw materials into Ed’s weapon of choice, all without the aid of a transmutation circle. Now that’s impressive. No word yet on whether Swatton will be able to turn your annoying little brother into a sentient suit of armor, but keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, watch and learn from the Man at Arms.
Check out our previous coverage of Man at Arms‘ masterworks, then let us know what other piece of what-if weaponry you’d like to see him create in the comments below!
