This is the wooden scimitar (sword used by Arabs) that i've been working on in my free time.Please enjoy learning how to build it.One more thing,I was working on it already when I thought of making it into a n Instructables.You don't have to rate if you don't want to.This is my first Instructables.
You don't need much, just a hobbby/pocket knife and a sharpener (takes a while) I used a roof tile as mine. You always need something harder then the knife to sharpen it. Picture 2 shows how to sharpen your knife.
Step 2: Cutting
De-bark your sword.It's more comfortable.Pic 2 (handle) looks rough but feels like silk :P . Try sanding it down. I used my knife on edge (vertical) and rubbed.
Step 3: Optional
I sharpened the end of my handle to use as a weapon. You could try it too. Little knob (on handle) is good finger gaurd if fighting :P .
