    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.

      Whoever posted this video OBVIOUSLY does not know a thing about obsidian, Obsidian may make for a cool sounding weapon used in video games, but the very first time that such a sword met any resistance the wielder would be left with nothing but a stub of a sword. Obsidian is a very brittle substance and does not stand up well under stress.

    8. TheBeast

      Well you can’t do it in Minecraft

    9. Agaliarept 731

      The good news is: after more than 5 centuries from the "fall" of the Aztecs empire, they're still the best at making obsidian weapons. Nice!

    10. Jayson Snow

      What I've learned: Don't melt straight obsidian rocks, even though it seems like it'd be cool. And it ends up looking epic as well.

    11. Fingolfin3423

      Our forefathers laugh at our modern machines and our failure to meet their smithy mastery.

    12. Jacob Carlson

      You should just nap a giant obsidian sword, that no one can even lift. like 5ft long and a hand or 2 wide. DO IT!

    13. Cryptologist101

      Quick call Forged In Fire producer! I have to give you props for determination.

    14. Trevor Rose

      Why did you decide to use obsidian in the first place? Seems like a poor choice

    15. Mark Raker

      Obsidian is a natural hard glass, why would try to change it? I have many Native American pieces of their tools. Arrow heads, knives, skinning tools, that were made by years of chipping taught by their ancestors. Not slamming you, but please go in a different direction. Teach the art of chipping the glass.

    16. daniel loxton

      wow minecraft is easy

    17. Janet Holmes

      Its just glass, really

    18. Donkey Bloxy

      Just craft crafting table...

    19. nevary

      If it’s just glass with different impurities, then do you think you can make a stein with it? Or at least a cup

    20. Illumina Blade

      I want to cast magic missile.

    21. Team Cyborg

      Weird flux, but ok

    22. O O

      can you make a sword out of ice next time?

    23. andres perez

      Get rekt n00b you hace 0 minecraft experience How To Make Everything it’s a wonder how you have 1mil subs

        The best part of this video was 13:59

    24. Oshaoxin

      Let's not forget the fact that obsidian is basically volcanic glass which is just superheated rock that is cooled down. If you must use obsidian, create a solid hammer with a huge amount of obsidian and a metal brace. Because of the glassy nature of obsidian you can best use it as it is as a cutting knife. Casting a sword out of it would simply make it dull and breakable like glass.

    25. luke Chang

      Make a diamond pickaxe

    26. Jose Alvarez

      I thought he was creating the first blade from supernatural

    27. MammaApa

      Spoiler: No

    28. Doom radier

      Next time try adding some stone to it

    29. Ajax Ashford

      Might have to use a frame inside?

    30. Adam Lowe

      have you considered using some sort of metal core heated up to a high temperature, but not molten temperature so the obsidian will have added strength. Also, the conductive properties of the metal encases in obsidian could even help slow the cooling.

    31. Whitney Mohrhauser

      A lot of crucibles, kilns and one son's toy sword are sacrificed in trying to make a blade to defeat the other or white walker.

    32. PsychoStuey

      Upvote for perseverance, sheesh

    33. Pierre Lehmann

      Literally more than half a year later and this still appears in my recommended videos, even tho I already watched it. And disliked it. And said that "I wasn't interested".

    34. Shawn Anderson

      You can't in minecraft, so you can't in real life. It's science.

    35. Agape Leone

      Awesome man!! Subed!

    36. Ben Arline

      I might cast better under a vacuum.

    37. Rigbone 64

      Subbed under 999K

    38. lostdrewid

      Can't even imagine how much you lost on this one :( People need to make saner suggestions XD

    39. Cailyn_calvin Lie

      The liquid looks like chocolate😋

    40. emile milton

    41. Jean-Ian Simard

    42. Can we get 2000 Subscribers without any videos?



      At 11:48 I thought you casted a blade with magical properties 😅 That’s unreal the properties . There’s a beach in Florida Flagler that has “red sand” six miles of it it’s a pink Coquina I wonder if that could be casted I was just there and it’s amazing .

    44. Julian Kersey
