Man at Arms Reforged: Iron Man’s SwordSeptember 22nd, 2014
For their latest weapon mashup, the guys at Baltimore Knife and Sword provided Iron Man with a weapon that I never thought I’d see him use – a sword. While his repulsor rays and chest gun are pretty impressive, the idea of a serious melee weapon seems like a good idea for good old Mr. Stark in close combat situations.
The end result of the blacksmiths’ effort is a large and heavy sword, with such touches as a Stark Industries logo, Iron Man’s gold and red armor color scheme, and an arc reactor, complete with the inscription from Pepper Potts’ gift to Tony Stark. Sadly, we don’t get to see them take down Whiplash or the Mandarin with the sword. Instead, we have to settle for the destruction of some glass mason jars and light bulbs. Seriously, guys? I could break light bulbs with the handle of a Swiffer.
