If you've never heard of Man At Arms: Reforged, prepare to be amazed. Working as a team of swordsmiths, machinists and metal workers at Baltimore Knife and Sword, their work can be seen in films, on stage and at Renaissance festivals across the country. However, they might be best known online for forging replicas of some of your favorite weapons from comic books, movies and video games (notably Wolverine's Claws or Cloud's Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII). This time around, they tackled the Phantom Blade from Assassin's Creed Unity, timed perfectly for its release today. Complete with a spring blade, mini crossbow and intricate detailing, the Phantom Blade might be one of the coolest weapons they've made to date. Check out the video below and take an unusual amount of pleasure in watching them violently attack soda bottles and boxed wine. Unfortunately (and by unfortunately, we mean fortunately), you can't own this incredible replica because you'd most probably cut off your own hand, but you can buy the mass-produced toy version (which is still pretty cool) for just $60. Cosplay away!
