lets face it, swords are cool, expensive, and hard to make. so, with a 6$ piece of weldabul steel,(take a note of this, Watson) a thin brass rod, a wood dowel, and a mind full of sharp and pointy objects, i set out on my quest for over-sized letter openers.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

like i said,you need a Piece of 1/16 inch weldable steel (the width that you want your sword.) A dowel that fits in your hand comfortably, A 1/16 inch bras rod, A 6 by 1 inch Piece of 1/16 inch steel For the hilt.

Step 2: What to Do

drill two 1/16 inch holes through the dowels and the Blade. then pound the rod through the holes and sand it flush.Flush.take the little hilt piece and drill several 1/16 inch holes rite next to each other, until you can tightly slide it down Your blade. then weld, solder or glue the hilt on.


Step 5: Have Fun!
