When you think about making a Pokemon in real-life, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not a sharp-bladed sword crafted by a master blacksmith. But that's what swordsmith Tony Swatton has done in the latest video on his Man at Arms video series.

Swatton has forged a true-to-life version of the sword Honedge from Pokemon X and Y (minus the sentience or ability to evolve into an even more frightening creature). You can check out the full video below for a brief making-of, or skip to about 3:48 if you just want to see the finished product and watch people cut things with it.
