This Instructable is a how-to for a wooden prop version of the sword that is carried by Altair in the game Assassin's Creed.

I decided to make the sword in three parts. Handle, Cross Guard, and Blade. Then I used a threaded metal rod to to make sure the connection between the three pieces was secure. It might have been easier to do one piece that started as the handle and turned into the blade and then attach the cross guard to it, but I already started before I thought of that and rather than lose momentum dwelling on how I could have done it I just kept on pressing on.

The supplies I used were:
-Thin pieces of wood (I got mine from a pallet)
-A threaded metal rod
-Wood glue
-Spray paint
-Clear coat
-Spray adhesive

The tools I used were:
-Coping saw
-Rasp and files
-Electric sander
-Rotary tool

Step 1: Design

To get the look right I grabbed a picture of the sword off the internet, enlarged it to the size I wanted and then printed it out. I just printed the handle part since I figured I could probably do the blade without it.

Once I had the design traced onto the wood I cut it out with a coping saw.
<p>i made this a before this instuctable but in foam</p>
<p>Cool! What kind of foam did you use? Do you have any pictures? How is it holding up? I always wonder how long foam props can hold up and if you made yours before this instructable you must have had it for quite a few years now.</p>
<p>i made a sheath for it and ive only used it for display so yea its held up although you could use them for playing theyre durability is good but wood is way better </p>
<p>Very good work! Congratulations, friend. Thanks for sharing!</p>
This is the best sword seen yet why don't you enter the wood contest?
<p>Thanks, but it was published long before that contest came along.</p>
I own the sword of alta&iuml;r and what you made is so exact you can sell them as replicas
<p>Thanks for the huge compliment!</p>
<p>Ezio's Sword next...?</p>
<p>Ooo, I do like that sword. It's not on my project list as of right now but maybe I should add it. Not sure how I'd do that basket guard though.</p>
You're right, that is a nice sword, but the one i was thinking of was the one in AC4
<p>The &quot;Kenway Family Sword&quot;?</p>
<p>I think it's the one you get if you get the ezio and altair pack or if you have played ac2 before. Not sure which.</p>
<p>I'll have to look into it. I haven't made it that one yet. I'm way behind.</p>
Real cool
That's awesome! The detail on the handle looks great!
I was really happy with the way that turned out since the detail itself was so small and I had never done any painting like that before.
Wow!! Looks great!!
Oh this is fantastic!! What a wonderful project!
