Oblivitus' Knex Sword





Introduction: Oblivitus' Knex Sword

A knex sword that I made on mlcad. The blade is flimsy, unfortunately. Build it from the pictures. I've provided close ups of all the sections. I suggest starting by building the hilt.

If you build it, post some pictures. I might put them at the end of the slideshow.

I'd like to thank the following people for their pictures:

    The problem is, qualities needed in a (K'nex) sword are weight (it can't be 5lbs of sword), size (which contributes to weight), and stability. If it's long, it's heavy. If it's stable, it's usually way too heavy. There has got to be a medium line.

    And one more thing: The sword needs to look (1 - like a sword), and (2 - cool!).

    omg this is so much better than mine I made an instructable for a longsword which is really a shortsword compared to this but can you please check out mine?

    This looks like a neat sword and I would like to build the hilt for my other blade. Could you post some better pics of the hilt please.

    i made a six foot claymore using a similar style blade I will post a few other swords before I post the camore meanwhile check out my tubas and saxophone

    Why do people always use so many yellow connectors :P
