Blacksmith forges Minecraft diamond sword from steel

In the world of Minecraft, you can buy a sword from a villager blacksmith or craft one yourself. Armorer Tony Swatton chose to make one for himself. A real one.

Behold, the diamond sword!

Armorer Tony Swatton wasnt content to stop at ax-sharp Batarangs. Nope, he had to go and forge a Minecraft diamond sword in his blazing hot blacksmith workshop of awesomeness. Somebody get that man a cold beverage, because hes on geek fire!

While Minecraft has multiple levels of swords, starting with wood, Swatton went with the highest level, diamond. Its all documented in sweaty, fiery detail in his YouTube series, Man at Arms.

Creating a real-life Minecraft sword presents some interesting challenges. For starters, it doesnt have the clean edges of a katana or broadsword. Its all blocky like just about everything else in the game. I never play video games, so when this was brought to me to make, I thought this would be a challenging build, Swatton says.

It took a band saw, a furnace set at 1500 degrees, a power hammer, and a belt grinder to get the steel sheet into the right shape. Dont try this at home, kids. For the grip, Swatton used ebony and cocobolo wood to create the pixelated grip, with a nickel frame to hold it all together.

The resulting diamond sword looks like it popped out of the Minecraft world, right down to the blue color. The cubist design leads Swatton to admit its not the most comfortable tool to hold. Its going to hurt the persoBlacksmith forges Minecraft diamond sword from steel,n holding the sword almost as much as what youre whacking with it, he says.

That doesnt stop Swattons team from taking the completed sword for a test drive, where it makes short work of soda bottles, a watermelon, and re-creations of Minecraft objects. Enjoy.
