The team of expert blacksmiths and craftsmen from the Man at Arms: Reforged Youtube series is back to recreate another weapon from a popular fantasy movie. 

 Using only 19th Century tools and techniques, they've built a replica of Aragorn's sword Narsil from The Lord of the Rings. This blade was broken during an early battle with Sauron, when Isildur cut the One Ring from Sauron's hand. The shards of Narsil were passed down through the generations until we first saw them during The Fellowship of the Ring, and Aragorn later had them reforged into his new sword Andúril.

The video shows how much work goes into a sophisticated weapon like this.
