The latest episode of AWE me’s Man at Arms: Reforged takes on Squall’s gunblade from Final Fantasy VIII, which the team recreated in real life using time honored blacksmith forging techniques. Once again these talented metal shapers have managed to create an insane video game weapon in real life using their skills with metal, hammers, and fire. They even have some fun with it at the expense of fruit and plastic jugs containing blood colored liquid.

You can check out Squall’s gun blade in action above.
