Dan Meyer swallowed a 38-inch sword with the hilt heated to over 1,525 degrees Fahrenheit. The sword was made by blacksmith Ben Robbins who lowered the sword down into his throat using blacksmith’s tongs. He performed the feat for the [History Channel][1] documentary, “[Stan Lee’s Superhumans][2]”. NOTE: Sword swallowing is dangerous, please do not attempt these records without proper training, supervision and safety precautions.
