Picture of 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.
Thanks,

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

Picture of 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

Picture of 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.

Your welcome.

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.

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.

GTRPLR1995 (author)  eli2414 years ago
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.

GTRPLR1995 (author)  Fox-san484 years ago
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

Nice, I like the hilt on this one it looks a lot more like the kingdom key. Thats the same way i did my hilt and put that ring on the hilt. You should get yellow and silver tape and make that either Mickey or Sora's Key, I recomend Mickeys cuz i dont see many of thos and i linke his
GTRPLR1995 (author)  FFVIIBOY4 years ago
Wow that's crazy. Before you even posted your comment I was talking to my mom about getting yellowish gold and silver spray paint to do Mickeys keyblade. I guess we both really like mickeys keyblade. When I paint it I will do an instructable on that.
Yeah to late for mine, although i could cover it with yellow tape i like it like this, actually im makin an instructable on my Keyblade right now
Awesome i finished the Keyblade tutorial
GTRPLR1995 (author)  FFVIIBOY4 years ago
that was fast.
Yep and its up
GTRPLR1995 (author)  FFVIIBOY4 years ago
I know I already saw it.
cool. it was kinda hard to do cuz i didnt have the supplies to make it
GTRPLR1995 (author)  FFVIIBOY4 years ago
yeah. Oh by the way, I got the spray paint to do mickeys keyblade. I am going to paint it tomorrow. When I do, I will make an instructable. 
Or you can put a picture of it when its painted at the end of this instructable, and then make an instructable on it
GTRPLR1995 (author)  FFVIIBOY4 years ago
Yeah, I think I will do that.
yeah cuz you should always do what i say :) now go smoke and rob banks and kidnap children :)
