In this Instructable I will show you how to make a ninjato, This ninjato will also extend to become a bo-staff with a sword at the end. If you are 12 under you should make this with adult supervision. And also do not forget to wear safety goggles while sharpening and filing.
Step 1: Items & Supplies
Step 2: Building It
Next cut out about an 8" piece of PVC pipe, then take one of your couplers and push it as far as you can on the 8" piece of pipe. When you finish that take your blade with the bamboo pieces on it and shove it in the PVC pipe on the side with the coupler on it, You just want to go to the notch on your blade.
Next cut a 3'-4' piece of PVC pipe out depending on how tall you are. Next take your rod and cut it down to about 4"-6" depending on how long you want it. Next stuff it into one end of your longer piece of PVC pipe You may have o do some carving and filing to get it to fit. when you are done with that make the rod come to a point (so you can use it as a spear when your sword is in the scabbard).
Next take your other coupler and put it on the other end of the handle. And then cut a small piece of PVC pipe about 1' and ram it as far as you can into your end cap. You should have about 1/2 left sticking out the end of your end cap. You can put that in your coupler and then hide a letter or something in the end of the handle.
If you want to extend your sword just take the end cap off the coupler on the handle flip it around and attach it to your scabbard. and when you put your sword in the scabbard don't push it down to hard because it will lock in place on the scabbard and it will be hard to take out the sword.
After that all you need to do is cover it in electrical tape and you are done. Hope you enjoyed and don't forget to comment and rate.
