Watch a guy create classic Bond villain's hat out of steel


Last week we brought you news of the debut of the AweMe Channel's new "Man-at-Arms" series, in which prop-master Tony Swatton created a replica of Jaime Lannister's sword from the HBO series "Game of Thrones".

This week, Swatton is back with another episode - this time he's showing how to create the lethal bowler hat from the James Bond film "Goldfinger", which henchman Oddjob used to try and decapitate his foes by flicking it like a Frisbee.

A spokesman for Break Media, which produces the AWE (Amaze, Wow, Educate) channel, said future episodes will feature Raphael's Sais from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", the "Adventure Time" sword, He-Man's sword and a Batarang from the Batman series.

Still holding out hope for a hammer (like Thor's) or giant axe (via Gimli). As long as people keep watching the series, hopefully we'll get to see those weapons forged.
