How to Make a Lannister Pimp Cane




Blacksmith is still a viable occupation. Instead of nobility, they just work for Hollywood.

Movie magic isn't all smoke and mirrors. Swordsmith and propmaster Tony Swatton has been forging weapons and armor for Hollywood costume departments for over thirty years.

Franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean and Blade are notches on his professional belt. But Game of Throne, with its long history of named Valyrian steel swords, is new kind of challenge.

This behind-the-scenes look shows off how cool it is to create Jaime Lannister's sword, though they do not mention if it's his everyday one or the Valyrian Oathkeeper.
