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:

Why do people always use so many yellow connectors :P
i have about 1000
i have 1376 yellow connectors

0_0 ........

I have like 100 - 200 i think :P
lots of them brake or my little brothers and little sister lose them ... I only have knex at my dads which I only go to every second weekend, I tell them not to play with them but they do constantly
it looks a bit flimsy if you memorize it as a real thing.

Intense.
One question, How do I take this sword apart?
Oblivitus (author)  CrankiestToast4 years ago
By using it, lol. But I've never made it so I wouldn't know.
The thing is, when I swing it, it begins to snap then when you swing it again, it all snaps back into place. The sword never breaks apart, lol.

Since the blade is flimsy, it can now be known as a whip sword. Like a real whip. The blade doesn't have to be strait to hit someone. You can still hit somebody with this if you flex the blade at an angle. don't do that tho, unless the person annoyed you first. Be nice to your surroundings :)
Finished the sword, It turned out.... Not so strong but its fun!

Pics below and my foot on the last pictures are a size 8 and a half shoe.

Sword blade fail lol.
Oblivitus (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
Lol, I know, epic structural fail. Still looks good though.
 LOL you should tell people not to make it unless they are making it for looks on the slideshow.
You could make it 6 layers. Or even 11, if you have the parts.
lol

D'OH!

Oh, and It's so flexible but it has never snapped on me.
Try putting white rods between the yellow cons.
Oblivitus (author)  PindaHoofd4 years ago
I was thinking about that today and I think that you're right, that would make it much stronger.
Yep.
I tought of that when i wanted to make it but when i was looking to the comments someone already made it.
ehhh im breaking it today, not gonna bother
Okay.

Holy crap, that's really flexible, lol. O well, it's still nice. Thanks a lot for the pictures.

 i wayyyyyyyy prefer this over tbm's. his is ugly, this is nice. 
why tbms was modeled after a sword in a video game(and if you use alot of black rods its really strong)
oh.
Oblivitus (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
Thanks.
 No prob! also..... POST :D
Oblivitus (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
I posted more pictures to build it with. I decided that there's no need for an instructable.
how long is the blade part?
13 then the greens on the end make it 14, counting on the bottom row

I wonder how many people actually built it. Anyways it looks strong but very uncomfortable to hold. I didn't build it but I still bet that it would be flimsy like all 3 layered swords. There's not much to do about that though. I'm afraid though that like all solid things though that when this finally does break, it would break pieces instead of just snapping sections off. A little give in a K'nex sword can be a good thing to help it from literally breaking.
Oblivitus (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
Agreed, except for the comfort comment, I think that it's fairly comfortable.
POST IT ASAP I WILL BUILD IT!!!! & rate it 5 and favorite it

and you will move up 1-2 spaces on my top 10 list!
