i think he's just a professional smith. his workshop looks pretty professional

What seperates cool from neckbeard,
seems to be about 20 kilos of fat
#64 to #63 - amuzen ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
to some extent, but he's in a completely different category from the MLP, fedora, swag, edgy, fat, living in their moms basement neckbeards that have come to be associated with the word though.
he's just like a classic blacksmith (stocky build you can see on his arms that his muscles bulge upwards from the bone rather flopping downwards so he has more muscle than fat , unkempt beard, pale complexion) combined with a fantasy/VG enthusiast.
Plus you should take into account that the only real market for hand crafted blacksmith goods these days are convention goers so if you choose to be a blacksmith (an art in and of itself) you either have to decide whether you're going to be a historical renaissance buff selling goods at renaissance fairs/online, a film buff selling props/online, or a fantasy buff selling at conventions/online.

im a blacksmith and i sell to everyone pretty often too
User avatar #77 to #72 - epicalania (07/03/2014) [-]
My experience with blacksmithing is about 3 swords so I'm never going to call myself a blacksmith but I will say that I'm experienced enough to have an opinion.
My swords were fairly plain, (2 gladius', an attempt at a broad sword and about 5-6 'trials' that I wouldn't count as swords) but from those I can definately say that they get easier as they go, as per obviousness, but I imagine that styles would work much the same way, so doing alot of fantasy swords would make you ab etter blacksmith allround but would make you much better at fantasy swords than historical swords.
So some people might specialise and would be able to charge more for the signifigantly higher quality of their makes in their own niche but someone who doesn't specialise would get all sorts of jons, so it evens ,out.
Of course he may not specialise this might just be a collection of his works of this style.
User avatar #230 to #77 - kinginyellow (07/03/2014) [-]
How much would a gladius go for? Not a prop but a real one made off of the Roman sword.
User avatar #357 to #230 - epicalania (07/04/2014) [-]
I don't sell 'swords, my quality would never be enough anyway.
But if you want to make your own then it's suprisingly cheap to set up a backyard forge, I used the cut-and-remove method for the basic shaping of the sword then used the forge to make the shape more precise as well as placing the fuller, then I finished it by hand.
It cost me next to nothing but I already had alot of the things I needed, it will almost definitely cost you less then you think if you consider that alot of it can be re-used to make more without paying for them again.
User avatar #78 to #77 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
i just make knives for people who need knives that wont break when you hit them with a hammer but every now and again someone wil ask for a sword like once a guy asked for a red damscus katana it took me a month to get it just right but i did it and it passed the strength and hardness test and the sharpness test didnt even register becuase the tatami mat never fell but it was in two i just never stop until i get it perfect inside and out
User avatar #184 to #78 - newforomador (07/03/2014) [-]
How much did you sell that sword for?
User avatar #258 to #184 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
350$
User avatar #84 to #78 - epicalania (07/03/2014) [-]
Allright, so your 'specialty' would be knives, you, as you just said, do all sorts of requests, I imagine most blacksmiths will take most requests, but I also feel safe to say that you are alot better at knives then with swords, although knives may be intrinsically easier than swords, I don't really know.
User avatar #85 to #84 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
i mean im pretty good with swords because i get a lot of machete requests and thats pretty much a sword
User avatar #89 to #85 - epicalania (07/03/2014) [-]
Alright, but if you want a sort of proof, try making two copies of something, make one in a style you've done before and one in a style you haven't, the style you've done before should be easier
My points seem pretty obvious to me but tell me if you want me to explain it further.
User avatar #90 to #89 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
ok im done
User avatar #328 to #72 - kinginyellow (07/03/2014) [-]
How much would it cost for something like a Gladius?
User avatar #329 to #328 - sonicsyndicate ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
depends how durable do you want it and what kind of steel do you want

Im pretty sure guns or even a small knife would beat the swords in a house robbery especially in a house where you cant even swing half of those swords without getting cock blocked by the wall. Would be a noteworthy burglary haul though if he is fast/strong enough and able to carry them out.

Gun yes, knife no
Sword has way more reach and you can stab with it and the guy that made it is a blacksmith, means he is probably fairly built, like bear mode built he could probably stab with a huge amount of force
#58 to #38 - swiggityswooty (07/03/2014) [-]
unless you have martial arts training, or insane hand eye coordination, i doubt that anybody could effectively use a sword like you say?
User avatar #41 to #38 - hasinvadedyou (07/03/2014) [-]
I'm just thinking of every house ive lived in there would be 0 room to swing most of these swords you're best bet would be using it like a lance and impaling the guy but that probably wouldnt work. IF you have like a bastard sword or something sure longsword>shortsword/dagger/knife almost every sword there is a greatsword though.
User avatar #272 to #41 - eiaisqzbsesb (07/03/2014) [-]
You COULD half-sword a longsword tho.
#1 - mephistesulfurion (07/02/2014) [-]
That bastard is the descendant of Hephaistos!
He reminds me of Man-At-Arms on YouTube, he also does Video game/movie swords.
But those ones are insanely good as well.

He's like Man at Arms, only good.
User avatar #222 to #148 - fffffffuuuuuuuuuuu ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
Are you implying that he isn't good?
User avatar #251 to #222 - zuflux ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
Good, but under to many restrictions and limits.

All of his work has seemed very rushed so far.
User avatar #149 to #148 - mephistesulfurion (07/03/2014) [-]
He's like Man-At-Arms.
Except he doesn't constantly take the most boring requests.
User avatar #150 to #149 - zuflux ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
I think Man at Arms is very constrained by the corp that runs his show.

Time Constraints, and so on.
User avatar #151 to #150 - mephistesulfurion (07/03/2014) [-]
Which is sad, Because he's really good at what he does.
I wish he had more freedom about what his creations, And not have to be forced by said corp.
User avatar #155 to #151 - zuflux ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
Honestly, most of the things he's done haven't been very interesting to me.

The Buster sword was ***** .
The "Lannister Sword" as he called it wasn't very impressive either.

Actually, the problem isn't that he can't make anything, because he obviously has skill.

The problem is that he either doesn't have enough time to make his works better looking and functional, it's that he doesn't seem to care about his works at all.

That comes through very well once you hear him talk about his works in a generic way, like "The Lannister Sword" The "Skyrim axe" and so on.
To be the kind of smith he is, you gotta care about the franchise or whatever you're creating something for, else it'll come out looking **** .
User avatar #294 to #155 - capslockrage (07/03/2014) [-]
I only watched 2 episodes, one he made the halo energy sword one where he made thors hammer.

both of them were cool but didn't seem like they took much blacksmithing skill, whereas this guy in the content makes some crazy ass **** .
User avatar #156 to #155 - zuflux ONLINE (07/03/2014) [-]
Edit: He either don't have time, or he doesn't care.

Atleast he was a psychopath like 90% of the other characters.

Although, he is stuck in a land full of undead, and has a demon chained up in his basement, so there that is.
