Some of you may know and some may not, but I have started my own Youtube channel called That Works that is much more educational than Man At Arms was. That said, we still do some builds on there from pop culture, but now we get to pick them. This time around we made our version of the Witcher Steel Sword. We took the design elements from the Netflix show, but the size is based from how the novels describe them.

Being a more realistic sword then most of what we tend to make, I thought you would enjoy seeing it made.

Great job Matthew, a really interesting and well presented film.

It was a real pleasure to work on the first series and to make the originals of this sword, the silver sword and so many other pieces, and now full tilt into the second. Back on the roller coaster!

All the best

Man, It would have been so much easier to just message you for pictures of all the details. We guessed on most of it and then they put out the Video with Henry where they showed more of the sword and we realized that we came quite close.

Killer work as always Leo!

Awesome, Matt.
The show sword looked too short for the rest of its proportions (I know why it was but it's still jarring to me) so seeing it like this is a real pleasure.

I agree 100%. We got a little hate for changing the proportions, but I think it was worth it.
