For a long time, young Sokka was the Xander Harris of Avatar: The Last Airbender. He didn't have any sweet bending powers and he wasn't the Avatar; he didn't have a great, noble destiny. He was just a dude with a boomerang. Then, he got the meteor sword.
More precisely, he met Fire Nation swordmaster Piandao, who taught Sokka to fight and crafted the sword for him. And now, we can watch our own swordmaster—Man At Arms' Tony Swatton—craft his own version of the sword out of actual meteor parts.
Come for the fun lesson in swordcraft, stay for all the cutting! Turns out this sword is sharp enough to cut through a lot of everyday objects including—awesomely—a certain DVD that very, very much deserves some cutting.
