Irish Mike Made a Real-Life Gunblade May 18, 2017

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

The Gunblade is the signature weapon of Final Fantasy VIII.  Wielded by characters like Squall Leonhart, the weapon is unlike any other.

One of my favorite shows on Discovery Channel was Big Giant Swords. The show featured a retired steelworker turned bladesmith named Irish Mike, who created enormous swords for enthusiastic clients.  The show may have ended production, but Mike is still creating his swords online and for the past two months he’s been working on replicating Final Fantasy VIII‘s Gunblade.

This has to be the best real-life Gunblade I’ve ever seen. The detail is incredible and its scale looks very accurate to the game. If you want to see more of Irish Mike’s work, visit his YouTube Channel!

Final Fantasy VIII is out now for PC and PS1.
