Real-life Predator blade gauntlet is the stuff of nightmares

Remember those deadly wrist blades in "Alien vs. Predator"? The folks of "Man at Arms: Reforged" have built a real blade gauntlet that looks absolutely deadly.

The deadly alien that first stalked Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1987's "Predator" just kept coming back in sequels. Now, humans (and other aliens) can fight back with wrist-worn weapons of their own based on the retractable blades shown in "AVP: Alien vs. Predator," provided they have access to a blacksmith shop.

The team behind "Man at Arms: Reforged" released a video on Monday showing Matt and Kerry Stagmer and their team of talented blacksmiths at Baltimore Knife & Sword building a Predator-style blade gauntlet from scratch.

The video shows the process from start to finish, going over the tools and materials used to complete the finished product so crafty folks can be inspired to make their own. And, of course, what build would be complete without a field test -- it's oddly satisfying to watch the blades leap out and then easily slice through a watermelon, soda bottles and a fake human head.

Check out the resulting carnage in the video above, and be sure to drop whatever you're carrying and run the other way if you see these deadly blades coming your way.
