Introduction: K'nex Katana

Picture of K'nex Katana

Here's my knex katana it took me 1 1/2 hours to design :)

  It's a very strong good looking blade/

Step 1: Blade

Picture of Blade

1-2 Pay special attention to the white rods on the blue connectors.

3 make sure you put the right amount of spacers on in the correct places.

Step 2: Hilt

This part may be confusing look closely.

if you can use black rods everywhere you can on the handle.

Step 3: Assembly.

Picture of Assembly.

1.Get all your parts together.

2 Position the handle guard.

3. Add one part C on.

4. flip it and add the next one.

5. Add 2 part A's on like so.

6. different view of 5.

7. add part B on now.there's only one spacer on each so it should be easy.

8. pull the 4 rods apart and slide the handle in.

9. do what you must to connect that black rod into that blue connector.

10. connect the black rods in now.

11. put the handle guard back together there will be some stress on it this is normal.

Step 4: You're Done!

Go flash off your new katana! no pun Intended.

Just a name for each of the parts so you know where to put them later on.

knexguy (author)2010-05-08

Nice, you could also use those orange half-moon track connectors with the little stubs on for the blade to make it serrated!
