Geek Weapons: Guy creates real-life Thor hammer

Celebrate your inner Norse god by watching weapon maker construct Mjolnir

By  

Just in time for Friday's debut of the Thor sequel ("Thor: The Dark World"), the AWE me channel on YouTube presents its latest "Man At Arms" episode, where master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges real-life weapons based on those in the world of fiction and movies.

Swatton is tackling Thor's hammer Mjolnir, creating a hollow version that still weighs about 20 pounds. Can it still smash and break stuff like Thor? Watch the episode to find out.

As always, my favorite part is the end of the episode, where they break stuff with the weapon. Gallagher has nothing on this guy with the watermelon-smashing prowess.
