Make the Iron Sword from Skyrim


The Iron Sword is one of the most recognizable swords in Skyrim. In this tutorial I show you how to make one out of foam board or cardboard. And I show you a neat little technique for giving it that wonderful wrought iron look. I also have the template for you which makes it much easier for you to make.

The template for this project is right here.

I also have a video on how to make this project. It is at the bottom of the page.
