Make the Monster Hunter Ravager Blade

This is a tutorial that shows you how to make a very large sword or weapon out of foam. We make the ravager blade from Monster Hunter and this one is Nine feet in length.

The cost is pretty low at 23 dollars total not including the paint. And you don't need a lot of supplies to make it.

The template for the miniature ravager blade is here

Quick Overview

This is a big sword! It is nine feet in length from tip to tip. But it is actually quite easy to make. And I would say that the most challenging thing about this project is figuring out how to get that large piece of pink foam home in the car! You are going to need a mini van or a pickup truck or something similar!

And the cost of this project is quite reasonable. The pink foam cost me 21 dollars and the wooden dowel cost me two dollars and change. So if you want to make a big impact sword you can do it without a big impact on your wallet.


A big thing about this tutorial - You might want to build this exact sword and that is great. But this process is good for lots of other swords. So you can use these techniques to make your very own sword.


Tools and Materials:

  • 1 sheet of foamular insulating foam, 8 feet in length and 2 inches thick.
  • 1 wooden dowel - 1 1/3 wide and 48 inches in length
  • Some means of cutting the foam - I used a hot wire foam cutter but many things will easily cut the foam, best is something serrated like a saw or hacksaw blade.
  • Adhesive: I used Liquid Nails Paneling wood and foam molding adhesive
  • Paint: Acrylics, Silver, Black and Red
  • Details I put on the sword were discs of wooden dowel cut to checker sized pieces
