Watch Swordsmiths Forge the Sword From Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon


Matt and Kerry Stagmer have a talent for recreating iconic weapons from pop culture. The Hattori Hanzo Katana from Kill Bill and the Master Sword from the Legend of Zelda games are just a couple of the pieces they've featured in their series Man at Arms: Reforged. Now, using their master swordsmith skills, the brothers behind Baltimore Knife and Sword have brought the Green Destiny sword from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon into the real world. 

In the video above, you can watch the lengths the team goes to to recreate the sword in painstaking detail. The blade is forged from 100-layer Damascus steel and artfully carved jade guards adorn the handle. The finishing touch is the intricate dragon design etched onto the blade itself. Whether you're a fan of the 2000 film or not, anyone can appreciate this level of craftsmanship.
