Making A Miniature Sword From A Nail!

As a quick reminder there's a giveaway going on this month! Check out the details in this post, or just email me using the form on your right to claim your free ebook from a Pathfinder Tales author!

Everyone loves those montages in epic fantasy films where our hero forges a sword. The ringing blows of a hammer overlaid with drums and raised voices, sparks flying in the darkness and the steam as the weapon is quenched of its fires speaks to something primal in all of us. Well this is just like that, except on a tiny scale.

A very tiny scale.
If you've ever wanted to turn your G.I. Joe into Conan the Barbarian then this video is just what you've been looking for. With a handful of basic tools, a little elbow grease and a lot of dedication it's possible to take any random nail you have laying around and to turn it into a broadsword fit for a true (though miniature) warrior.

Check out this video at Inspire to Make which started all of this crazed enthusiasm.

If that doesn't make you want to arm every toy in your possession, then I have no idea what will.
