Would you temper a sword in molten lava?
Incredibly, that’s exactly what this sword maker did. Witness how this bladesmith tempered his sword in hot molten lava.
Tempering metal on a sword is a very important step to achieving maximum strength. But would you use a volcano to do it?
That’s exactly what Joe Mundo of Lava Sword Inc. did in a video he shared via Youtube. First, the journey across the barren landscape surrounding the Kileau Volcano shows us that this is certainly a dangerous spot to be in. Joe thrusts his sword blank into molten lava. When this sword is about to end up as lava itself, he pulls it out with a chain. This sword is glowing, moments away from becoming liquid itself. Now, that is hot, to say the least.
We certainly do not recommend our readers temper swords like this at home. Simply walking to this spot could be lethal.
