So you want to make an Energy sword. If you like halo it is fun to have your own boffer energy sword. For those uninformed a boffer is a piece of PVC pipe covered in pipe insulation and wrapped in duct tape. This project took me about an hour but for those new to boffer making could take upwards of 2 hours. I'm sorry there are a distinct lack of pictures but I made this without an instructable in mind. The Total price is somewhere around 10 bucks. I am not responsible from any burn injuries sustained from the water. Let's begin shall we?

Step 1: Materials

Needed materials 

      6 ft of 1/2 " pvc pipe
     2 6 ft lengths of 1/2" pipe insulation
      Blue, purple tie dye, or aqua marine duct tape
      Electrical tape
      one large pot
      oven mitt

you might try changing the handle a bit; the Energy Sword is made for the Elite hand. Elites only have 3 fingers and a thumb. The protrusion on the handle goes between their 2 middle fingers, and the other 2 curl around the bulge. <br> <br>Humans have 5 fingers, so it would be difficult to hold it properly.
thats awesome <br>
Neat design. But many boffer groups won't allow your handle crosswise to the blade for safety reasons. Look up &quot;punch dagger boffer&quot;. Such handles encourage overly hard thrusts.
I suppose that makes sense. I made this for myself however and im not really part of a group, so my friends and i have no problem with this. But I do see what you are getting at. So thanks for the tip.
It's a spoon like thing.
