Turns out blacksmithing is tougher than in Skyrim

Who'd have ever guessed?

I don't think that anyone really thought that Skyrim provided an accurate depiction of a blacksmith's trade. I mean, those dudes have to hit stuff for a really long time. It looks too tedious to be fun. Unless they have a power hammer, which is an incredibly cool tool. I think I'm going to unnecessarily add it to my Amazon wishlist.

Impressively (and through the magic of the power hammer), this real life blacksmith makes a piece of armor and a dagger out of some soda cans and leather strips. It probably won't be good enough to take down his first dragon, but I guess I haven't seen many of those around anyway.
