Step 5: Finish

Take the hilt and attach it to the umbrella with a bit of glue. Go show off your amazing umbrella or give it to someone for Christmas.  

Some ideas on what you can do with the hilt is:
-Put it on ski poles.
-Put it on a conductor's baton.
-Make your hockey stick look like a ninja sword.
Just finished this, made a lot of improvements. Thing came out amazing. Wife loves it. I told her if she doesn't get stopped by the police at least once I haven't done a good enough job.
That's amazing. High five over the net!<br>I'm gonna have to make a new umbrella now, better than yours!
Great instructable! I am definately going to try this. One idea though, would be to use http://www.tsukamaki.net/tsuka/ &lt;- that for the handle.
Nice!<br><br>Personally, I couldn't be bothered cutting out the 'bowtie' shapes; I'd either just twist the material and glue it down, or paint it instead. Or use that link you mentioned.<br>Liking the hockey stick idea too.<br>Kudos!
Well, if you look up katana handle wrapping, you'll find that you /don't/ cut triangles out of the material. You /do/ twist the material. Handle wrapping is not terribly difficult, and there are plenty of tutorials out there so you can do this right.
That's what JermsG was saying, that they wouldn't cut out triangles and that they would've followed the link to the tutorial on the proper way to do it.
To be accurate, I wasn't talking about what's realistic, only what I would do if I were making this project. I get the impression this isn't the most accurate representation ever, nor does it need to be.<br>I think cutting triangles is more time-consuming and less effective than simply twisting the fabric or painting the wood.<br>To do it 'properly', sure, use a decent wrapping technique such as those given in the link. It's probably what I would do, since I tend to prefer a nicer finish in this kind of thing.<br><br>I was trying to present a way to save time and effort for a better result than the original offering, but with much less effort than required for a completely realistic result.<br><br>Anyway, enough nitpicking for now. Less say, more do. =8-)
Sorry if what I was saying came across wrong, I was trying to back up what you were saying and clear up any misunderstandings. I obviously didn't manage to do that very well :)
If you want to wrap the grip on the umbrella insted of cutting it out you can follow my instructable it isent the best but you can get the point <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-wrap-a-samurai-sword-handle/
living here in Florida with my Concealed weapons carry ticket I can carry a live blade. that would be good camo for it.
Will try to stay away from anyone with a ninja umbrella in Florida then! ;)<br>

&quot;Ever wanted to show off your inner ninja without being arrested for carrying a scary katana or wakizashi?&quot;<br><br>Sadly due to inane laws and government in my area, I would be arrested for even owning this, the same as for if I owned the actual sword.
Please refer me to the section of your law that states an umbrella handle if resembling a ninja's sword handle, will be considered illegal. I think you're stretching a laws definition here.
If I am, the police certainly are. We've been given a &quot;grace period&quot; to hand over any umbrellas that resemble swords, rifles, or other weapons.
Woe !! is this for persons under 18 or adults as well? <br>Wonder what Sheriff is laying this stuff down . <br>Wonder what happened to bring it about . Reminds me of this youtube.com/watch?v=xeOaTpYl8mE
It's for everyone, though people under 18 can't buy knives for any reason.
You live in Australia Diskin ? If it is the US ,i doubt that it is enforced or adhered to .
Yep, I'm down in AU.
Where are you so that we can avoid, mock, and moon that juristiction? <br>(Every so often a court or judge does something so outrageous that the court or judge deserves to be mooned as a propper demonstration of our contempt for their outrageous actions.)
If you want to add a bit more flare to the project look into putting a Tsuba (Hand Guard) on the end just above your wrapping. There's already an instructable for how to make one on the site, but if you're looking for something nicer you can always purchase one of the net (search: katana tsuba). Or you can try improving on the instructable already here and show us your results :)
It would look nicer on a long umbrella so it'd look like a blade lol
Nice, I've seen these for sale online. DIY is always better.
