Brave Man Builds Real Devil May Cry Sword, Cannot Somersault With it

Further proof that giant swords designed by Japanese artists are entirely impractical in the real world, Michael "Giant swords are kinda my thing" Craughwell has built a 1:1 replica of Dante's Rebellion sword from the Devil May Cry series.

Built entirely from steel, and weighing a whopping 33.5 pounds, it doesn't look quite as manageable as it does in the games. It does still look awfully nice, though.

Especially when you see Craughwell run through the snow and smash a table with it. A table that's on fire.
