A good hard wood I've heard you could use is hickory

take an old white cande and rub it over the twine. Then sitck it in the fire after 3 coats. Then it will have an authentic feel.

I did this with a custom harry potter wand.

Not bad atall.
Suggestions. For the grip do it as a whipping, in cord or wire. Copper wire from old motors or transformer/chargers looks great. You can also cover the blade in foil to make it look like steel. Check out Gutenberg or the Internet Archive for how tos. The Boy Mechanic vol.1 has an entire section devoted to imitation arms and armour.

unless you want to put some serious dents in your hard work...
then again i'm sure there is some kind of hard wood that is perfect for this

Sorry, a sword you can't use is like a 4x4 that never sees mud-both make me laugh from sadness : (

nice project and very good "ible" I did an "ible" on making knives out of oak flooring and have been thinking about making a sword to go with them but haven't located the right piece of wood yet
