A lot of people have created items from Minecraft in real life, and today's video is no exception.  Where it really stands out is the level of quality that went into creating a real-life, fully usable (and alarmingly sharp) Diamond Sword!

Okay, it's not made from real diamonds, but it's safe to say the durability of this sword is comparable to its in-game counterpart.  Master swordsmith Tony Swatton - responsible for many of the prop swords you see in television shows and movies - took on the challenge of making the Minecraft diamond sword, and what he created is nothing shy of breath-taking.  It works too; Tony takes his newly crafted sword out for a spin, showing off the sharpness of the sword by shearing apart a watermelon, smashing a pig, and...well, just see for yourself!

I would not be surprised it it WOULD be possible to actually make a real diamond sword using diamonds, but make it a little less blocky, so it really tears through everything :D

You can't really piece together separate diamonds, so you would need to use a diamond big enough to make the whole sword.  Needless to say you aren't going to find a diamond that big on earth.  (Try one of the exoplanets made of diamonds).

You can pretty easily make a diamond edged blade, though.

I wouldn't be surprised if they started selling these as collectibles, provided it was legal.

[/quote] Oh btw a watermelon is as dense as a human skull!!! Meaning if you used one of those in the zombie apocolypse, (which is more real than you possible could think. You would be as effective as a monster truck ramming the zombies down...

Pretty cool. I've been following Man at Arms since he first posted the video of him making the Adventure Time sword. I'm waiting for him to make the Master Sword from LoZ.

Considering this show, diamond swords should be a mining tool! [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/steve_shocked.gif[/img]
