Certain people make a hobby of taking fictional pointy things and bringing them into reality. The Legend of Zelda series' iconic swords are a natural part of these dream projects, with a replica of Dark Link's Sword recently brought to light. This time, however, the swordsmiths of Baltimore Knife and Sword have taken on one of the more unique pieces of the games: Fierce Deity Link's double helix sword from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
The twisted shape of the sword is about as complicated to replicate as one might expect, but the whole process is laid out in the video below. Upon completion, the sword is tested on the standard fare of gem-filled pots and zombie heads.
So what do you think? Is this sword fierce enough for the likes of Link? What other swords would you like to see recreated?
The amount of work they put into this is...head explodes
I wonder if they'll make the Monado Sword...unless if they did...I'm not sure...
Notice how the pots had gems in them.
I wonder if they could make Chrom's Falchion from Fire Emblem...
DOES IT SHOOT LASERS?
Ive seen these guys before. They made the Elucidator from Sword Art Online
Not going to bother watching it, they didn't make the blade on the master sword, they just cut it out of sheet metal. If it's not done properly, it's not worth the effort.
Pretty nice. Shame about having to paint the blade, but everything else was impressive and it is functional and very nice to look at by the end.
This one was started from a couple of blocks of metal and forged out to blades. That's what a sheet of metal is though, right? Sometimes ya just skip that step after doing 500 times I guess. :/ I really don't know anything about it, though.
This is awesome. And just as insanely difficult as one would assume. Very impressive!
Looks nice, but also looks smaller than it should be :/
Why do you have to show me this Nintendolife??? Now I want to have this soooo bad! XD
Not my favorite in the series but cool.
That is so awesome I don't even... O_O I still prefer the Master Sword they did (and the keyblade), but it's nice to see that they're making even more Zelda weapons. They should try the Majoras Mask swords in 2015.
Well I'd say that was a pretty good build! Very legit looking.
Same show, different people.
Well my grandfather was a blacksmith so no I'm not an expert, but I do know something.
...I need this, so pretty...
While Link is a Japanese character, his world is inspired by the European middleages. Lots of our swords were pretty crummy craftsmanship compared to what they did in the far east, without much of any amout of layering.
Though I do suppose something called the mastersword ought to be done properly. And I agree that cutting it from sheet rather than hammering it out is going cheap.
This video's redemption in my eyes concerns how useful the blade actually turns out to be, despite being such a ridiculous shape.
Absolutely, if you are going to arm your cannon fodder, erm I mean infantry with swords instead of pole-arms then you're going to go quantity over quality. It would have been an education to see the blade hammered out properly.
