Just one question,how did you reinforce it? I might do the same thing.

The swords in the game occasionally have sparks zap from one blade to the other, so i took 8 or so ladder connectors and snapped them into place on each blade, facing the other, in groups. Then, i connected them with a rod.

I can explain without pics, and I wrecked it a few years ago, so I hope my instructions were clear enough.
