How to Make a Nice Sturdy Lightweight Keyblade





Introduction: How to Make a Nice Sturdy Lightweight Keyblade

This is my instructable on how to make a nice life size replica of a kingdom hearts keyblade. This replica can be swung and played with a lot before it will brake. This will also be great for cosplaying. Hope you all like it.  Oh and please leave a comment about what you think.


Step 1: Tools and Items

These are all the tools and items around the house you will need to make your keyblade. The only thing I did not picture is spray paint because you can chose what color you want it to be.

Step 2: Getting the PVC to the Right Size

This is showing you how to get the PVC to the right size. I cut my PVC at 3 feet 8 inches because that is perfect for me and I am 5 feet 11 inches.

Step 3: Teeth

Never mind the measurements on the cardboard. I meant centimeters. I was also half asleep when I did this part. LOL Anyways, this is how to make the teeth for the keyblade.

Step 4: Hand Guards

These are the hand guards. These take the longest to make.

Step 5: Key Chain

This is how to make a key chain for your keyblade.

Step 6: Puting It All Together

This is the last step. After this all you have to do is paint it (which is not included in this instructable. Might make a separate one just on that.). Hope you enjoy your new keyblade.

    Hey can you X- blade by combining the two keyblade you make

    Couldn't you use foam board instead of card board? It's much more sturdy.

    nice.... thanks.... im going to try making a keyblade now... :D

    hey,i read your guide and i love it but i gotta ask,how much is the PVC pipe and how long is the pipe? and can you make rounder hand gaurds or does it not work(i plan on making a heart shaped one for my friend)
    thank you for taking the time to read this! i need a reponse as quick as you can i plan on making a series with the keyblades.

    what did you use to make the curve

    whats the total height oh the hand guaards

    hey this looks like an awesome tutorial but I can't seem to view the pictures in the hand guard step in a larger size. It seems to work with every other step. I really wish I could make it but I can't view it :(

    hey instead of sawing 2 times on the pipe, you can just put the start of the tape measure on the good end. just a suggestion.

    My PVC was bent bad so I had to cut twice but yes you are right, you can do that.
