Introduction: 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.

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