Man at Arms: Reforged Makes Ice from Game of Thrones
Man at Arms: Reforged has tackled so many weapons from fictional titles, you think they’d be out of options by now — however, there’s no shortage of weapons in video games, television, and beyond, In one of their most recent episodes, they focus on an important sword in Game of Thrones: Ice. The weapon belonging to Ned Stark is made from Valyrian steel in the books and television series. That’s not a real metal, but the Man at Arms crew points out the material looks a lot like Damascus steel. Watch the above to see how they craft a real-life version of the Stark sword.
