it's easy to make

Step 1:

making the hilt, just layer some papers, about 36, layers for the base and 16 layers for the design

Step 2:

overlay popsicle sticks to make it stronger, about 2 layers each side would do

Step 3:

cover it up

Step 5: Saturate the Blade in Super Glue, It Should Harden It, and for Some Low Spots, Put Some Super Glue Then Add Baking Soda, a Little Sanding Ang the Lowspots Should Be Taken Care Of

<p>how did you make the habaki(collar) and how many layers was it?</p>
<p>4-8 layers should be fine</p>
I created my own, pretty simple, not as awesome as yours.
<p>That looks amazing. Very good construction technique. Impressive results from the materials. How did you make the paper layer stack? Guing individual strips together one at a time or all at once soaking them in glue? Id like to try to make stack paper like that if you could give me a quick instruction on that. Maybe Im missing it in the reading.</p>
I have my instructible on paper stacking, so you can see it better
Oh. I see now. Thank you!
well, what I did was folding the paper crosswise then glue that, and then folding that lengthwise and glue that too. that's practically the basic, thats 4 layers
maybe I'll do a tutorial on paper stacking
just dont swing it around so hard, it'll break
