You all know that Tods Workshop makes highly accurate reproductions of historical pieces, but you may not know we also make film and TV weapons; not really 'props', they are more real than that and a lot cooler.
In our latest YouTube film we talk more about the pieces we made for Geralt in Witcher.
You can watch it by clicking on the video below or by heading to our YouTube channel.
Witcher by Netflix, starring Henry Cavill was a stand out series for 2019/20. Nick Jeffries as Head of Armoury Department / Weapons Designer and myself, Tod Todeschini, as maker of many of the hero props, are two guys heavily involved in the show, and in this film, we have a ‘show and tell’ about Geralt’s weapons.
As we both have an intimate knowledge of the thinking, design and manufacture of the weapons, we know more about these pieces than anyone, and here we share our thoughts over a table full of original props.
With many thanks to Netflix for allowing us to make and share this video.

The English longbow is laden with myth; of its origins, its power, its achievements. That and the centuries that have passed since it was used in earnest, means that the knowledge of what it was actually capable of doing has also passed.
