Make an Orcish Dagger from Skyrim

The Orcish Dagger is a very primitive looking dagger from Skyrim. And it is easy to make. I use some slightly different techniques for this project. But you have lots of options. If you don't have foam you can always do it with foamboard or cardboard.

The template is right here

Things you will need:


Print the template

Print up the template.










Cut PVC pipe

The piece labeled "B" is a guide to show you how long to cut your pvc pipe, dowel or broomstick. It is about 1 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long.









Trace template onto foam

Cut out Parts A and C from the template. Lay them on your one inch piece of foam and trace them.









Draw the internal blade line

Be sure to draw the internal blade edge line. This is useful for when you carve out the shape of the knife.






Cut out the part

Now cut out the parts. I am using a hot wire foam cutter but you can use just about anything. Foam cuts pretty easily. An xacto knife or a hacksaw blade also work well.






Carve the shape

Okay! Let's start carving.








Rasp into shape

Some of the tools you can use to carve out the shape of the dagger is knifes, sandpaper, a hacksaw blade and a rasp. The rasp works really well.







Sand it

Finish off the shape with sand paper. I used 220 grit. But don't make the knife really smooth. You want it to be very raw, rough and orc-like.







Carve the pommel

And follow this same shaping and sanding process with the pommel.


NextOkay! Let's put this dagger together (continue)
