Kitana has been one of the most popular fighters in Mortal Kombat since her debut. The Edenian princess plays an integral role in MK lore and wields one of the deadliest weapons in the game. So it doesn’t come as too much of a surprise her fan blades would be a popular request for Man at Arms: Reforged.
The talented team of blacksmiths and craftsmen at Baltimore Knife & Sword go to work in recreating Kitana’s war fans from Mortal Kombat X in their latest video. While the weapon is smaller in size than some past projects, the process turns out to be multi-layered and more difficult than anticipated. Yet, all their hard work leads to a product that is both accurate and deadly functional. Watch the video below to see each step of the process detailed.
The Man at Arms series is a fascinating look into what it would take to bring pop culture weapons to life. The demo portion at the end really displays just how sharp the blades are and the effectiveness of slicing through various objects. The facts dropped throughout make watching not only fun, but educational as well.
