Step 2: Shape the blade
Use a sanding attachment to rough shape the sword. Don’t “sharpen” the entire blade. Leave a section square. Use hobby files to further refine the blade.
To get a consistent bevel on the edge use a marker to color the entire blade. As you file away it’s easier to shape in a strait line.
Use a grinding disc to remove material for the handle. Don't forget to wear your safety googles.
