Prop master Eric Hart built a Legend of Zelda sword for some adorable kids putting on a musical. The original was just a stage prop, but it inspired him to make something that looked even more like the real deal. It took him five months to build the finished product and the result is incredible. It’s about as real as it gets unless you cast a metal version that’s also considerably more deadly.
See video of the musical and the sword-making process after the break.
