Introduction: Durable Paper Sword

a paper sword that is durable but wont kill anyone ;-)
i belive this is my design
ACTUNG!!! the sword has a coathanger in it! you have been warned!

Step 1: Materials

1.phone book
2.coathanger
3.duct tape
4.electriclal tape

Step 2: The Blade

for this part you should use about 30-40 pages from your phonebook
the folds for the blade are in order in the pictures note: blade should be as thick as it is in the last pic.

Step 3: Reinforce the Blade

now you will want to take a folded coat hanger and insert it into the blade

Step 4: Hilt (or "Handle" for the Non-sword-savy)

the hilt is basically a rectangle that is thinner than it is wide
then just duct tape the hilt to the blade (don't worry it will look better later)

Step 5: Hand Guard

this is the last thing you will have to fold. the pictures show how to. it is a basic fold and will take some cutting with some heavy shears.

Step 6: Finish It Up

now all you have to do is put everything together and cover the blade in duct tape and everything else in black tape

AND YOUR DONE=)

okay, let me try to explain... rip 30-40 pages fold in half long-way unfold, use middle line as a guide and fold both sides in to the crease.

correction...
I made the design myself but I was saying "I believe this is my design" merely protects me from those: "you stole my idea... JERK!!!!!111" comments
correction 2...
"durable paper" means that the base material is paper.
correction 3...
the blade is made of paper the tape is used to hold the shape and give the appropriate colors
correction 4...
"Durable paper" is meant to say it is paper and is supported and will hold under heavy wacking
P.S. I don't like your tone.
