Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
Knife sharpening (instructables).bmp
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

Picture of 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

Picture of 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 .

Step 4: Ending Product

Nice for a start, but bring the size down a bit more sand it a little further. Right now that thing looks way too unwieldy, I would say cut the top off so it doesn't go any farther back than the hilt of the sword. After that, carve it into whatever shape you like, and post the results!
hey good instuctables but it look like just a plain old stick to me

Thanks for the advice but my parents already got rid of it becase my Baby Brother kept wacking people with it =/<br/>
Ha, that sounds like my little brother. And he's going into baseball... God help us all.
is it just me, or did you just strip the bark off a curved stick? very creative. It looks nice when you sand, plane, and paint them.
