The sword is pretty durable and pretty strong. You can swing it but it will hurt you wrist a little bit. It looks pretty much like a samurai sword maybe a little different but it works. Don't swing at anybody for it will hurt. I would say practice soft but no hardcore swinging. Oh yeah, this is my first instructable so feel free to criticize or anything like that, give feedback. The pix might not be clear considering they were taken with camera phone but you can still tell pix I think.

Step 1: Katana Handle

Use gray rods, and green connectors for the handle. White connectors up at the top for later the guard. The handle is pretty self explanatory but it could still be a bit tricky. The black little pieces on the handle, it may make holding it more comfortable but they make the sword a little more sturdier.
Your pictures are a bit unclear :/

You should make a sheath, but great sword!!! <br>
nice sword but it uses lots of pieces! p.s very realistic!
I'd have to say, this is a nice sword. I think it falls more under the category of ninjato than a katana. Great instructable though!<br>

Wait, if you were using like a real and hitting a tree or wall something, of course it's going to break. Remember the sword isn't steel.
