Brachydios Switch Axe by HMalant Brachydios Switch Axe by HMalant
So I've been working on this for a bit, and unfortunately has taken up far to much of my personal time then I'd like to admit, partially cause there was a deadline that I had to meet, but now that it's done and submitted I can finally post photos of it.

This is a fully functional (manually functional) Brachydios Switch Axe from Monster hunter 3 Ultimate. It is to scale, so as you can imagine it's quite large (7ish feet) But this took a lot of work to get right, and a lot of working converting gaming physics into reality is a tedious process. but all the pieces can slide around and such like a S.A From the game, it does both sword and axe mode and a put away mode as well.

Honestly it was a lot of fun, and I hope it does well in the competition. (IGN's MH3U Comp for any one who's wondering)

Thanks,
HSProps.

I have made a video for the axe. Disregard sound filmed on a camera: www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFkkP2…

Dude, this thing is awesome, this is the weapon I use myself.
Say how heavy is this? Despite using foam is it still pretty heavy or?

Nah I can swing it around one-handed pretty easily, I think it weighs around 5lbs.

There will be no tutorials, as I would have to make another axe, and that would involve someone paying me to make another axe, so the chances are pretty slim that it would happen.

Is this thing LARP approved? I'd totally use it for my character if it was cause this thing is beautiful and just holy shit I want it!

The axe was never intended for larping, as it's solid foam. However props like my White 3(eleven) Are LARP approved.

This is simply THE GREATEST thing I have ever seen prop wise. You are EXTREMELY talented and had I had the money currently I'd buy this and anything else you'd sell to me that is Monster Hunter. You are a real life Wyverian Blacksmith.
