GOW Special: Cast an ornamental Leviathan Axe
In celebration of the highly anticipated arrival of PlayStation®4 (PS4™) exclusive, God of War®, on April 20th, PlayStation Australia has teamed up with the renowned blacksmith school at Eveleigh Works, to offer consumers a very unique God of War inspired axe-making masterclass.
Eveleigh Works will be offering consumers the opportunity to partake in an exclusive workshop, which will not only give them a lesson in the foundation skills of one of the world’s oldest trades, but also the chance to cast their very own ornamental Leviathan Axe. In the new God of War story, the powerful magic Leviathan Axe is a brutal weapon as well as a versatile tool for exploration, utilised by Kratos as he embarks on an epic and emotional journey into the Norse wild with his son, Atreus.
During the workshop consumers will be taken on a journey to learn about Norse Blacksmithing techniques and history, and how these skills are used or have evolved over time. Following the introduction, consumers will get hands on with their axes, from casting right to the final finish of the handle.
- Use of gas furnaces to heat bronze to 1100 degrees C
- Cleaning of the casting and grinding the axe head to its final shape
- Shaping and polishing the timber handle
- Patination and final cleaning of the axe head
Watch the workshop teaser here.
Exclusive to PlayStation 4, God of War will launch on 20th April, 2018, in select Australian retailers and on PlayStation Store.
