After you cut the blade you will want to take your rasp and grind the edges like a real sword you could also use a belt grinder to do this but I don't have one. After you have done that on both sides you sand the whole sword till its smooth. Than you are going to get a Dreamel and make the blood groves or the fuller. First you mark them in sharpie than I use the Dremel to grind them our carefully.

Yeah it's one of my favorites. I am prob Guna make another one because the blade on this on is way to pointy.
