Halo Energy Sword from Knex

Picture of Halo Energy Sword from Knex
I was bored one day. So I made a Halo Energy "Sword". I don't know if it should be considered a sword, because it's so flimsy. Don't be a jerk and don't post any bad comments, because this is my first instructable.

Step 1: Making the Handle

I didn't feel like taking the handle apart because it was hard to put it together. Trust me, its complicated. Here I show you the handle and try to make it seen from angles that show you everything it consists of.

Step 2: Making the Frame

The frame is the part on either side of the handle. One of the images is a side view of the frame, to show you the layered pieces.

Step 3: Attaching the Handle to the Frame

OH NO A SPECIAL ROD!!!!! It's a bendy version of the long grey rod. If you don't have the special rod, I know it's easy to substitute it with a few smaller rods and connecters. But I'm not wasting anymore time with this. MOVING ON...

Step 4: Making the End

How boring is this...Ok make the end. OOOPs that image should be in another step... Whatever. Making the end of the sword should be easy.

Step 5: Put It All Together

Put it together. WHOOP-DEE-DOO you got a sword!!! THATS MADE OUT OF KNEX. Your soo cool. And I'm done. Have fun with your flimsy sword. And if you want to post an instructable on how to make this sword better, I don't give a @#$*. Just make sure people know that it was my idea in the start.

very nice it would be more realistic if theere was a way for the rods to be the color as the actually sword, but sadly i cant build since i dont have any bendys ='(

I have made a gravity hammer sort of thing from halo3 but it is really flimsy and heavy if I get a chance to take a pic and get it on my laptop then I might post it but I can't make an Instructable it is too hard sorry

Good sword looks almost exactly like halo 1 Can someone make any other halo weapons like the rocket launcher or the mawler ( the weird rovolver thing )

I like it, It looks awesome, but can you get different pics so it is easier to make the handel? Nice sword though!

Like the idea, and shape, looks really similar to the sword. Just flimsy. Nice job though.

Seems a little on the weak side, but cool none the less

I said it was weak, REALLY weak. Im not that proud of it anyway. I was just bored one day, its not like a masterpiece or something.
