The blacksmith YouTube channel That Works has posted a new video showing how to make Tanjiro‘s Nichirin Blade in real life. The video is sponsored by Funimation and depicts not only the process of creating the sword but the history and cultural background of forging Japanese katana.
Interested in owning a Nichirin Blade of your own? Tamashii Nations’ “Proplica” (a portmanteau of “prop” and “replica”) line of character items aimed at adult collectors is planning to sell a life-sized replica of the Nichirin Blade in Japan and overseas next year.
Bladesmith Ilya Alekseyev has previously made other weapons depicted in fictional media, including anime. Earlier this year, he created Asta’s Demon Dweller sword from Black Clover for the YouTube channel.
