Picture of How to make a wooden Orcish Dagger

So, with all the projects going around about Skyrim, I thought I'd share my own! I will show you how to make a wooden Orcish dagger, and when you level it up you get 8(?) Damage in an object that only weighs 3 and has a base value of 30 gold! I think this is your winner even if I do prefer elven.

So what you need is a piece of wood you will be using for the dagger
Airdry clay
green
black
gray paint
leather strips
Hot glue gun
saw
Dremel (Not unnecessary but very helpful)
wood shaver
half circle files
sand paper
Vice

Step 1: Shaping

Draw your design onto the wood you chose, I made my dagger about 12'' long. Put the wood in the vice and start sawing.
Then when you get the main shape, start going in closer. My wood split a little but I filled it in later. 

Then get out your dremel/file and start shaping the grooves. Use your wood shaver to make the handle round, not square-ish. Look at pictures.

Step 2: Detailing

Get out your sand paper, start out with a lower grit and work your way up to higher until you are satisfied.
Get out the clay and start shaping the parts. You may want to secure it with super glue depending on what kind of clay you used, because mine cracked.

Step 3: Painting

First, I coated it in a nice layer of spray on rubber to help keep everything in tact, it also served as a base coat. Then get your green paint and start layering it on, next paint the handle brown, Get the black paint and put on a heavy coat and quickly wipe it up to give it a used look.

Thanks! You can't really see it in the pictures but the butt of the handle has a silver finish. Hope the instructions were clear.
