If you make this project email me a picture! I will email you a certificate of contribution from stormthecastle.com You can print it up and hang it on the wall.




One of the things that I like about this project is the clean lines of it. What I mean is that the blade has a clean and crisp look without a lot of detail. So what happens is that when you paint it silver it ends up looking like a nice piece of steel.


Materials and Tools

  • The template is here
  • 1 sheet of foamboard. (Elmer's Foam Board)
  • 1 Piece of wooden dowel that is 1 inch in diameter and 9 inches long. ( you can substitute for this and improvise all kinds of things)
  • Glue or hot glue
  • Paints: Silver and Black and brown if you paint the handle
  • Brown leather or cloth for the handle. I used black leather.

Extra page in template

If you don't have a wooden dowel I have a nice option for you. In the template there is an extra page for your foamboard or cardboard blade. You replace the wooden one with this one. The template has instructions for this.





Let's Get Started!


Cut a slot in the wooden dowel

Cut a wooden dowel nine inches long. And put a one inch slot in the end like this.












CHeck the slot for fit

The slot should be about the size to fit two pieces of foam board like this. (which is about 10mm wide).











Cut out template pieces

Print up the template and cut out the pieces.








Tape together the template pieces

And tape together the two pieces that make up the blade.





Trace template onto foam board

Place that template on foamboard or cardboard and trace two of them.

NextOk, let's continue with the tutorial
