Iron From Ice: Man Builds Surprisingly Strong Ice Sword

February 29, 2016


This is a video of the ice sword that Allen Pan made. Allen made the sword using Pykrete, a frozen composition of approximately 86% water and 14% saw dust or wood pulp (in this case toilet paper). Pykrete is much stronger than ice and is actually more similar to concrete. So that explains why he can cut watermelons and decapitate snowmen without his blade breaking. Plus he embedded blue LEDs in the sword because everything looks cooler with LEDs (case in point: my penis, which you probably just mistook for a TRON lightcycle). So, do they use ice swords in Game of Thrones? I wouldn't know because my mom never lets me watch it because she says it contains 'adult themes.' Please, like I've never seen two people kiss before!

Keep going for the video, then let's make our own Pykrete swords and try to break each other's arms.

Thanks to hairless, who used to shave with an ice razor before discovering how much easier it was to just burn all the hair off your face with a lighter.

    I wonder why when Colin Furze made the ice wheel bike he didn't use Pykrete.

    Distantly related is papercrete (concrete and paper pulp). I doubt papercrete would make a sword but it would be pretty interesting to see what you could do with it.

    So weird! I was literally just thinking about this yesterday!

    I'll have to keep this in mind for the next time I'm bored.

    I like the fact the sword will be blood soaked after battle... Literally.

    Game of Thrones "adult themes" is not just kissing, they also do tax preparation.

    I wish things made me laugh as easily as they make this guy laugh.

    But alas. I am dead inside.
