Playing make-believe was a popular pastime that consumed the lives of many children back in the day; those same kids are reverting back into their childhood with adult make-believe, aka LARPing. Forger Tony Swatton created the ‘Diamond Sword’ from video game Minecraft to showcase how realistic make-believe can get.

The video game-inspired sword is an amazing replica of the video game weapon, except for the minor fact that it’s not made from diamonds. The video showcases the extreme process of forging the sword into reality and also showcases how sharp and durable the sword is when used.

Having a Diamond Sword in real-life is something that players of Minecraft would enjoy, but it’s probably for the best that the sword won’t be available in stores any time soon.
