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.

  • Glad to see I am not the only one taking the threat of The Night King seriously.

  • Spoiler- no you can’t

  • What was the flux you used?

  • Spoiler: no.

  • You talk too much. I watched the whole video just yelling 'shut up and just get further!' At my screen..

  • Cool experiment, and thank to share it, but did you try to learn from a master black-smit, metallurgist, they have knowledge of guys who tried what you did during ... Something like thousand year ...? No offense but, you spend a lot of material, energy, time, a lot of waste. With learning you will succeed better. But again, you tried and it's interesting. Bye

  • I learned it in minecraft,lol

  • Obsidian's Minecraft ≠ Obsidian's our world

  • How did you make the opsidian portal in real life I'm not taking a baut Minecraft but how is that true

  • Patience ! Good job

  • Now i now how to make a sword whitout using mods

  • WTF I just wanted to watch an Minecraft video.

  • mY EYES SPARKELD

  • Yeah it’s called dragon glass

  • you're one remarkably persistent individual. cheers.

  • Is an obsidian sword possible? Yes is it possible by smelting? Absolutely not. You're doing it wrong

  • Found you by accident.. omg I am transfixed!! I subscribed

  • Step 1 to be a real gamer!

  • This is a weird Minecraft mod

  • *thinking of my obsidian weapons in gw2* this is soooo cool!!

  • Yo tengo un reto parA usted que nadie lo ha echo todavia y que podria reportar mucho dinero si funciona para mas informacion send mi a private message

  • Hi, i have a question for you i send to private

  • White walkers beware

  • *all minecraft fan boys* cant wait for this to come out

  • Can u make an amethyst sword??

  • Well, at least they tried.

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

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

  • 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.

  • How about making a bedrock sword?

  • Warning This comment section contains ton of Minecraft Kids be aware.

  • Fake fake fake fake fake fake you can only find obsidian in the ground I know that because I walked around my whole map and only saw grass! Oh and I tried to make an obsidian it did not work but good news you can make a wood sword witch is just as strong XD

  • pretty bubles

  • Buat pecinta batu yg pada sotau tonton nih.. opsidian beda dengan sintetis.. opsidian itu alami tapi bukan batu dy smacam kristal

  • Nice Presentation Man!

  • What happens if you added a mixture of obsidian and iron or steel

  • Huh?

  • vsauce ?

  • Spoiler NO

  • This is real aint minecraft this is biology and temperatura this aint minecraft its just a bunch OF glitch life forms to use diamonds to kill the purple black dragon OF crap

  • Y DONDE COJONES ESTAN LOS SUBSTITULOS EN ESPAÑOL?

  • Wanker

  • This looks like hes making some kind of strong drug

  • Dude at last attempt ..at 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.

  • I see the problem.... when u guys heat it up u must let it cool but not for to much time, them do ur thing. I’m just saying shit now😂

  • Can you melt a sword and cast obsidian though?

  • Can u melt obsidian?

  • Wtf this video is six months old and still is on my recommented

  • Yes, they did it in GOT

  • Thats alot of flux

  • Now get the hell out of my recommended....

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

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

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • Wtf? Ligthing purple? Minecraft or really can light?

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

  • 2:10 amazing chocolate milk

  • With the amount of flux you added, I don't think the final substance is anything like obsidian.

  • fun fact you can use borax as flux

  • can we have a part 2 with someone good at making swords?

  • Well that was dumb

  • Where to find the obsidian please?

  • Why was this a meme

  • love how you casually edit in your nether portal. But do you really think it wise to show people how to do this? Last thing we need in the world now is a bunch of zombie pig men getting released.

  • Wait... you mean my entire life... I’ve been picking up obsidian. Thinking it was something else.... and now that there is none left in my yard I find out....

  • Good tips on how to defend from white-walkers, but I think I'll stick with valyrien steel, it's less brittle. Winter is coming.

  • 8:41 look at the obsidian next to the big sword. Are you seeing what i'm seeing?

  • So get a stronger crucible

  • You don't have to add frickin' flux. Just find a way to make it ACTUAL LIQUID so that it will flow naturally instead of completely changing the composition.

  • Dude, there's more flux than material there, and borax basically turns to glass when you heat it, so no shit you're winding up with glass instead of obsidian. Get a stronger and hotter furnace. They exist.

  • Good luck Jon Snow

  • i would like to see you take the gold out of computer parts

  • Doing it wrong, but that's ok..

  • Whitewalkers better watch out now.... Dragon glass blade

  • At what degree lame brain you know what it is it's called oil shale

  • Dude make titanium armor and Ill be interested

  • How do I always end up laying in bed watching these videos when i should be sleeping ??

  • i know its hard cus its fragile and all. but the "blade" is lookin like shit

  • The real sword gets made at 11:44

  • you get my like for serious dedication and sacrifice.

  • Minecraft

  • Hmm the topic of the video really interested me cause I couldn't see a possible way of reforming the obsidian into such a perfect shape as the one of a sword. I don't know if there is a process somewhere around the world (highly doubt it) but surely something went wrong cause you made something out of obsidian (which is not obsidian since you changed its mixture) and it was so fragile. Obsidian's toughness is pretty close to diamond's and that's why it was used as a tool or weapon material in the early ages of humanity. And last i think that if you ever try the whole procedure again you should try cooling the "obsidian" exactly the soonest possible as it comes out of the oven. You see obsidian gets the form of glass because the magma, that comes by the melted mantle of the earth, escapes inside chambers that have extremely lower temperatures. Otherwise if it was given even a very little more time to cool off it would form an actual rock with minerals and etc. So to make long story short try degrading the cooling time at the lowest possible an give us a feedback! Nice try btw!!

  • *So where is the download link?*

  • Game of Thrones made me click this.

  • The answer is no. There. You go now it can be removed from your recommended.

  • Wow this is so epix

  • 2:15 looks like chocolate milk

  • MINE CRAFT!!

  • CS-tv favoritism at it’s finest.

  • you can cast obsidian easier by grinding it into a fine powder and melting it and grinding it again five-times

  • You need metals to make the obsidian sword stronger

  • You're thinking too much like glass. While it is indeed a natural glass, it's not so before it is formed. What you could try is making your own molten felsic material, pouring into a thin mold, and then trying to cool it as quickly as possible, as opposed to trying to slowly cool it in an annealing oven. I'd start with say CO2 fire extinguishers, as Mythbusters got a can of soda to "cold" in I think 3 seconds back in the day with the aid of a CO2 fire extinguisher. From there, you could try pouring liquid nitrogen on it... I would also suggest pouring BEFORE starting the rapid cooling process, as this would allow the molten material to take a shape before being introduced to the cooling process. Sure, you wouldn't be using obsidian in a casting manner like say steel or aluminum, but you would indeed be casting what would become obsidian...

  • So the answer is no. You cant melt and make an obsidian sword. you can though, grind it up add stuff to it dye it back to black and make something from that.

  • shit video thick prat

  • Watched this video to see this joker destroy thousands in lab equipment, worth it

  • "Let's make and Elucidator!"

  • Video starts at 13:59

  • So.... the answer is ... "no." That's okay - interesting to watch anyway.
