Plot Synopsis

BIG GIANT SWORDS: LEGEND OF THE BLADEMAKER is a series of enhanced episodes of BIG GIANT SWORDS, with added facts, tweets, and bonus scenes. BIG GIANT SWORDS is a one-hour reality series that follows sword maker Irish Mike, his trusty sidekick AmeriMike and a motley crew of artists and builders, as these masters of steel bring to life the stuff of fairytales and legends. Irish Mike has been designing life-sized replicas of weapons inspired by video games and 80s fantasy sci-fi movies, and this YouTube sensation was launched into the spotlight after he was commissioned to make a life-sized, ornamental replica of a sword from Final Fantasy 7. From solely making replica swords, Mike's business now focuses on his own original designs. At around $2,000 a pop and some swords weighing up to 80 pounds and coming in at 6 feet long, Irish Mike is used to taking his time to create these functional, metal masterpieces. But in order to make his passion a full-time gig, some changes have to be made. With a new business model calling for two swords a week, Irish Mike assembled a sword building team of questionable craftsmen and women, picked from the best, or rather, only candidates available on Martha's Vineyard, where he is based.
