Big Giant Swords News: Exclusive Clip For Tonight's Episode Features Making Of Fire Breathing Dragon Sword [VIDEO]
Big Giant Swords has its second episode tonight. For this one, Irish Mike and Amerimike are going full on geek with tonight's creation. It may seem impossible to get any more geeky than making giant swords, but these guys manage it.
How you ask? Two words: Senior Dragonologist.
Irish Mike is commissioned to create a fire breathing dragon sword. Which is a sword in the shape of a dragon' head, and although it's not confirmed in the trailer, it will likely shoot actual fire.
No half measures for the team that has its own Dragonologist. This is serious business.
For all those who aren't up on their Dragon mythos/history/biology, Irish Mike and Amerimike have a little lesson on the different types of dragons that exist in the fantasy world. It's important to the creation of the sword.
Trust them. They have a Senior Dragonologist.
Although sword making is not as prevalent in this preview trailer, it's interesting to see what goes into designing one as we are treated to Irish Mike working through the first steps of creating a sword before the iron even gets hot.
Big Giant Swords is a new show on the Discovery Channel that features swordsmith, Irish Mike, and his motley band of helpers as they craft large scale, fully functional weapons based on pop culture, history, and mythology.
You can catch this week's episode tonight at 10. Watch the trailer below.
