a sensation that has been sweeping the U.S.. and Canada is medieval fighting games they are live action RPG's. I'm going to show you how to make a cheap legal sword for these games. This is my first Instructable so go easy on the negative comments.
Step 1: the core
to start the sword you need a piece of 2" PVC pipe or graphite. the length of the sword cannot exceed 48 inches. cut it a few inches short so you can leave room for the pommel and tip padding. note: the longer you make it the heaver this is going to be so remember that these battles have lasted for at the most a half an hour.
