How to Make a Nice Sturdy Lightweight Keyblade





Introduction: How to Make a Nice Sturdy Lightweight Keyblade

About: Formerly was "Legofanatic". It's been a while since I have been on here but I'm thinking about making a come back. Maybe some BMX Instructables and maybe some other stuff hear and there.

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.

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

    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.

    Oh sure no problem... Check out this pic and I hope this helps you.


    hey nice keyblade! can u put a drawing of the handguards? cause i dont know how to draw it, your drawing is not that specific...

    Thanks a lot. Now, what exactly are you wanting me to do??? I gave all the deminsions for it so you should be able to draw it very easily.

    Cool. Be sure to put lots of hot glue and tape on so it will make it super sturdy. Within the next few days I should be posting how to paint it if you want to wait for that. Thanks

    i'll look next time i can :D

    have you made it yet? Just wondering lol

    Thanks. It means a lot to me to see that other people like my work.
