Meet Tony Swatton, blacksmith to the stars. For over 25 years, his business The Sword and the Stone has been furnishing Hollywood blockbusters like Batman Returns with all manner of props. Captain Hook's hook, the Infinity Gauntlet easter egg from Thor, and the swords in Pirates of the Caribbean all came from Swatton's workshop. A Wired profile and video feature looks at Swatton's backstory, how he got into the props business, his methods, and his clients. You can also keep up with The Sword and the Stone's work through the company's blog.
