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.

  • Can this mod be used on my minecraft server?

  • I thought CS-tv was smart the answer is yes I killed the ender dragon with it

  • Would it have worked if he used an electric ark furnace and melting volcanic rock that would then turn into obsidian? (Edit) I feel like he would need a really large one

  • CS-tv literally recommended this to everyone

  • Can you melt a sword and cast obsidian? 10 questions science still can't answer

  • Please leave me alone

  • That cat was thinking that was a litter box. Oh kitteh. ^,;,^

  • I D I D I T Y O U T U B E

  • This bugs me because it’s so easy. You’re cooling it too quickly, you’re melting it too quickly and using the wrong obsidian. Look into south americas green obsidian. Then don’t use that flux you had, use wax with slight zinc additive.

  • he's using mods

  • You sucks ooh lava

  • Can you melt crystal like quartz to recast it into a pure mold? I like the idea of a pure crystal skull or pyramid that's been cast instead of carved and polished. Possible?

  • Your A Meme On Reddit

  • I'm suprised that youtube hasn't recommended me this

  • So you made obsidian blade without using obsidian

  • This has been recommended for me so much, so i had to watch it *i want my 14 minutes back*

  • Lmao they made swords from Minecraft into a real thing.

  • As defined by geologists; no. It isn't obsidian. It's not debatable lol. It's still a really cool video though! And I'll be going through your other stuff

  • Nah fam u gotta crush that obsidian with a *diamond pickaxe*


  • I watched it. After a week of torment, I just couldn’t hold on any longer. Forgive me, mother.

  • Why does this make me hungry????

  • My god just end it

  • 13:10 now THATS a LOT of damage!!!

  • سبوووكيييي😂😍

  • Aaaaaaaand it’s a meme.

  • I watched it now leave me alone youtube

  • put the vermiculite on the castment in the mold.

  • Raecckoöumhehnnddededed

  • Is this the face of God?


  • *r e c o m m e n d e d*

  • You need to build a sword shape form and put water and lava inside of it

  • Spooki like

  • Try to rebar it

  • are you super rich or something? how do you find time for all of this?!

  • Rip recommended

  • Stop

  • This is probably impossible but I wonder what type of sword it would be like if somehow form obsidian and diamond together in a similar way on how to forge a katana. With no impurities added in. 100% obsidian and Diamond layered with each other like a katana, I wonder how that weapon would perform?
