K'NEX Sword (Name It Maybe?) -- My First Instructable

Picture of K'NEX Sword (Name It Maybe?) -- My First Instructable
For my first Instructable, I'll be making a sword. I would love it if you would comment on what you think of it, and what I could change.
Looks cool
Blade is sturdy
Serrated edges are BA
Handle is a bit bulky
Slightly flimsy at the handle connection point (but still strong enough to swing)

So all in all, in my opinion, it's a pretty good sword for my first try. Let's get on to the first part!

Step 1: The Outside Frame

Picture 2: Add the blue rods to ONE, I repeat ONE of the frames

Short step, but that could change... Find out, on Step 2!

Step 2: The Center Piece

Do as the pictures say!
Picture 1:Make this. The black connectors are just differently colored. The same as the white. No pieces need to be broken, I just wanted to get rid of them.
Picture 2:Get two white rods.
Picture 3:Add them in the shown spots.

Step 3: The Two Inner Pieces

These will add two crucial layers for support, as well as looks.
Picture 1: Make this.
Picture 2: Grab one blue rod and three whits.
Picture 3: Put them as shown.

Step 4: The Hilt

It's a bit bulky and uncomfortable, but a later version may sport a better feeling handle. Or, if you don't want to wait so long, make your own! If you do, I would love to see it.
Picture 1: On its side.
Picture 2: Nothing on the inside, Just orange connectors.
