A new show focused on a welder that creates sword replicas from popular video games is coming to the Discovery Channel.

The program is called Big Giant Swords, featuring Michael "Irish Mike" Craughwell and his sidekick AmeriMike. Irish Mike has already blown up on Youtube where he chronicles himself making life-sized replicas of weapons inspired by video games and 80's fantasy science fiction movies. He's shown people how to recreate weapons like Cloud's iconic Buster Sword and Kain's Flame Sword from Blood Omen. 

The first episode of the show has him creating a weapon to rival Zeus' lightning bolt and a Chakram. That sounds right out of a video game...

The show debuts on January 13 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Check out the videos below of some of Irish Mike's grand video game sword creations:
