Picture of God of War: Blades of Chaos

I made these replica blades six years ago when I was seventeen. They are made after my favorite game God of War (for those who don't know). They aren't perfect but i think they are pretty good for a first try with what tools I had (jigsaw, sander and a wood file). I have learned a lot and acquired way more tools since then haha.
They are made from a single piece of knotty pine and a length of chain.
-First i started with a template for the pieces i needed. 
-I cut out a main sword piece and then two more to go on each side of the main piece.
-Then i filed and sanded like crazy until the blade had a nice edge and was smooth.
-Painted the pieces and screwed them together. Attached the chain to the butt of the handle and was done.
And now they make a nice edition to my game room.
awesome
This is.. so beautiful. Only words I have

Thanks for the compliment! Well I think that I'm pretty much finnished with this project. I like to think of it as a good example of one of my first serious projects. I am curious about bronzing the handles though. Do you know how could I do that?
