This is how you make a very simple buster sword in a day if you have all the materials. This is my first instructable and I worked hard to make it. So please don't criticize me. Read entire set of directions before starting. my sword had a blade that was 82 inches tall, a hilt at 1 1/2 inches, and a handle at 11 inches. So in total my sword was 7 feet 10 1/2 inches tall but it can be shorter to fit a Halloween costume or something (actually it is recomended that it be anywhere from 3 to 6 feet). Put any suggestions in the comments and please give this a five star rating.

Step 1: Materials and work space

Now you are going to need:
Nails (or screws if you would like to)
Thick dowel (I used 1 1/8 inch dowel)
Drill bit matching your dowel
Glue (I used gorilla glue but you can use wood glue)
wood (Desirably 3/4 inch high 5 1/2 inch wide and another at 3 3/8 wide by 1 1/2 inch high)
something to prop wood up on
saw (table or hand held you decide)
 Paint ( if desired)
Tape measure (if you like to be exact)

I looks great! Easy to follow, also. I'm going to try making one (but a little smaller)

yeah it is
that is why i recomended making it smaller
my handle broke because it was old wood
but i still have it but I would recomend a metal or thicker handle
or a smaller overall sword

Great for a fist instructable. Looks sort of heavy though. Good overall job.
