Swordsmiths forge Sephiroth’s Masamune katana from Final Fantasy 7, see it in action here

Tuesday, 14th January 2014 13:09 GMT By Dave Cook

Final Fantasy 7 villain Sephiroth’s Masamune sword is a serious bit of kit. The swordsmiths over at Man at Arms have only gone and made it for real. See it in action here.

The video was posted online by AWE Me, and shows how the blade was forged by master swordsmith Tony Swatton. His mates then proceed to slice things in half with it.

What do you think?

    And then Squeenix sued them for approximately $9842874825728547289057289572895473485735732502375 for making it despite Man at Arms not selling it to anyone, then made a much worse version that nobody but the most desperately blind fans bought.

    @1 As if he hasn’t done this for quite a while now with a TON of different games, and there’s nothing there to sue him for really.

    @5: I was mostly cracking a joke at Squeenix’s expense there, but to be serious for a moment, the guy having years under his belt doing this with tons of different games (including other Squeenix games like Kingdom Hearts) means absolutely nothing.

    Squeenix has gone after people with cease and desist orders in the past for creating Chrono Trigger fan sequels and for trying to launch an FF7 fan web series. It doesn’t matter to Squeenix if someone makes these things for absolutely free, and it doesn’t matter how long they’ve been at it, they will shut people down for infringement of copyright anyway. The Chrono Trigger fan sequels in question were out there going strong with several of them in existence, and Squeenix only sent the lawyers out to shut them down when their half-assed Chrono Trigger DS “remake” didn’t make the insane amounts of money they expected it to make.

    In this case, if Squeenix wanted to, they could send a cease and desist letter for creating the sword when they have the possible opportunity to make it themselves and sell it for ridiculous amounts of money. Sure, a case could be made that it’s not an issue here because Man at Arms isn’t selling it and physical objects are different from forms of entertainment, but I’m doubtful that’d stop Squeenix.

    why would anyone want to buy that sword lol? it can´t even be used properly, because the material is too weak and bends every time someone swings it ffs.
