‘Man at Arms’ shows you how to make Thor’s hammer


Tony Swatton, the veteran armorer and master blacksmith who previously recreated the Dark Knight’s Batarangs and Captain America’s shield on his web series Man at Arms, is back to craft a replica of Thor’s hammer Mjolnir.

Apparently lacking uru, Swatton and his crew instead use materials like chromoly steel, bronze and other Midgard materials to forge the mighty weapon, which weighs 20 pounds hollow and will be 200 pounds when filled.

Pretty sweet, but that’s a little intense for the average fan to make.
I made one last Halloween out of styrofoam and a plastic pipe wrapped in leather. Turned out pretty nice and still sits on the shelf as a nice conversation piece.

I read that wrong! I thought it read:

‘Man at Arms’ shows you how to [take] Thor’s hammer.

I thought it was going to be a vid of the He-Man character showing us how tough he is! haha…

I bought one for $19.99 that looks exactly like the one out of the comics. I admire the craftsmanship but my preference is for Thor’s hammer to be made out of stone ( or at least look like it is.)

I’m glad this one looks like its supposed to. It’s a bit shiny, but it looks like Mjolnir. When they made Cap’s shield, it looked awful!
