Adam Savage Builds A Really Sharp Looking Replica Of Excalibur

For generations fantasy nerds have dreamed of the moment when they are able to pull Excalibur out of the stone and become a mythic hero like King Arthur, but it ain't every day that you come across a magic sword in a stone.

However, Adam Savage was able to make a pretty sharp looking replica of Excalibur from the movie Excalibur out of aluminum as part of his One Day Builds series for Tested, and he found making a replica is nearly as hard as forging a real sword!

All Adam has to do now is stick that sword into a prop stone in his front yard so he can start each day by pulling the sword from the stone and holding it aloft, exclaiming "I have the power!" Oh wait, that was He-Man...

"... he found making a replica is nearly as hard as forging a real sword!"

Depending on where you start, and the tools you use, the blade could take between three hours and three weeks to forge for real. Creating the brass parts and finishing could never have been done in a day.
