Make the Orcish Dagger from Skyrim - Part 2

In this part of the tutorial we finish off the dagger by assembling it and sealing it.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here


Cut the PVC

If you haven't done it yet cut your handle. Use 1 inch pvc pipe, a dowel or broomstick that is about 1/1/4 in diameter. Cut the length to 5 1/2 inches in length. If you have big hands like me cut it to 6 inches in length.






Glue handle to blade

Now glue that handle to your pommel. Apply a generous amount of hot glue to the handle. My hot glue gun gets the glue very hot and sometimes that can melt the pink foam.







So, I apply the glue to the pvc pipe then let it cool for a few seconds before attaching it to the pommel and handle.

Prime with mod podge

Now we seal it and strengthen it. This step is important. You can use either yellow wood glue or mod podge. Apply three coats and let it dry between coats.







Paint black

Now paint the blade and the pommel black.
