    I took some user comments way to seriously and figured out what it would take to melt obsidian and sand cast it into a sword.

    20. Arthur The Bootleg

      Well, at least they tried.

    21. Dusk Wolf

      Though mixed with metal Im sure it would be stronger. Maybe more metal then obsidian.

    22. Eduardo EquisDe

      Según la ley de maincraf la obsidiana se consigue minado v: falso alav!!

    23. SnakeEater82d

      The bubbling was most likely from moisture in the mold. Since you went to a glass factory to do the annealing did you consider using their smelter to melt the obsidian in the first place? Casting glass itself is not unknown & they may have been able to give you a few useful pointers.

    24. Spoden

      How about making a bedrock sword?

    25. Mentalno Poremećena

    38. LemonRedstone Gaming

      Dude at last attempt 11:53 put the VEDIO at X0.25 and see that the person who picked it up have dystroyed it due to heavy force and trying to be quick and fast with the process. I was angry when I saw it.

      Alguien me puede explicar por que el video teniendo un titulo en español... No tiene ni siquiera subtitulos en español? XD

    47. Todor Tashev

      I had to give a thumbs up because of your determination to reach your goal. Damn, I though I was stubborn.

    48. Joe Ng

      I don't think that is considered obsidian, because it is a composite, not just one element and there is a specific process these elements go through to become obsidian.

      1. Joe Ng

        That being said, I think the point of this video is to get a lot of views, I am not here to judge you, maybe I would to the same in that position, but just saying.

    49. jean pool salvatierra

    50. Alexis Jaramillo

      No es una buena idea, no me imaginaba que el resultado sería tan malo aún así el vídeo estuvo entretenido.
