See a Real Life Battlefield 1 Dagger Forged in Awesome Video Featuring Danny Trejo

Watch swordsmiths build an Arabian dagger and then see Trejo slice things up with it.


The newest Man at Arms video went up today, with the master creators building the Jambiya knife--an Arabian dagger--as seen in the Battlefield 1. It's cool to see weapons like this one forged in real life, but the video is helped further by the guest appearance of Machete's Danny Trejo.

It's pretty neat to see the weapons-makers build the dagger and they do a good job of explaining it in a way that anyone can understand. There is an incredible attention paid to detail (they used materials and practices from the World War I era), including some "afterplating" on the handle. Take a look at the video below (Trejo shows up at the end for a surprise):

In other news about Battlefield 1, a new patch came out today that fixes bugs and more. You can see the full patch notes here. Additionally, players have discovered a zeppelin glitch that turns the airships into tornadoes of fire.

GameSpot's Battlefield 1 review scored the game a 9/10.

"With Battlefield 1, EA and DICE have proven the viability of World War I as a time period worth revisiting in first-person shooters," reviewer Miguel Concepcion said. "It brings into focus countries and nationalities that do not exist today while also shedding light on how the outcome of that war has shaped our lives. As World War II shooters proved many years ago, no game can truly capture the entirety of a global conflict. This is why the focused structure of the War Stories anthology works well. Moreover, Operations succeeds as an effective educational primer on the battles that this gripping adversarial mode are based on. Battlefield 1 is just an introduction to one of the deadliest world events in history, but it is an outstanding, feature-rich package in both its emotional stories and strong multiplayer."
