We live in a wonderful age. Not only do we have far too many blockbusters hitting theaters at the same time these days (okay, I guess that can be a negative), but the internet has allowed fandom to thrive, and for passionate, talented fans to put their unique skills to work in making fiction a reality.

In the past, there have been many videos and blacksmiths who have brought Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, into the real world. However, if you’ve seen Thor: Ragnarok, you know that the film saw the unceremonious end to the iconic weapon. Given that it’s Thor, we knew it wouldn’t be long before the Asgardian took up a new weapon. In Avengers: Infinity War, we were introduced to Stormbreaker, a mighty ax forged to take on Thanos.

While all the other Avengers were off in their own subplots, Thor’s own revolved around him heading to the dying star of Nidavellir to forge said weapon. The god nearly gives his life to make it happen, but when all said and done, he’s able to create that weapon that — in addition to being a baller weapon — is able to channel the Bifrost, making space travel a snap.

Of course, with the film fresh in theaters, the folks over at AWE me have taken the opportunity to forge the weapon in real life, and man is it a formidable piece of work! In the video, you can see them smashing objects with its blunt end (including a figure of Thanos!). Sadly, we don’t get to see them actually cutting with the ax end, but given how heavy it is, I can see that being a real safety hazard.

What do you think of this real Stormbreaker? Let us know your thoughts down below!
