OK, constructive critisicm. The blade is floppy near the handle, and the whole thing feels rather unweidly. he handle hurts like HELL to hold, but that can be fixed by wrapping paper around it. overall 4/5, but could be improvrd.

Replace the grey connectors on the handle with straight orange/brown connectors, it becomes more comfortable.

1. put rubber holding straps around the handle
2. Make the thing more than one thick, this is a great example of a awesome sword so just make it blue rod thick

Mepain great rifle

i said !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ZELDA FAN!!!!!!!!! POST!!! because i was really excited. i usually try to spell right, but don't care about capitalization and punctuation. mostly beacuse its summer, i dont care as much. im suprised you are very very mature for being 9, you being the maturest 9 yr old ive ever met. im also supprised you like to spell right, i found a 16 yr old that was terrible with spelling. i saw the matrix i am a male. i think scottich men wear kilts, like skirt things with pants underneath. go check wikipedia, an overated website. i think its cool how you are learning c++ c batch and java. you ned to learn kling on :P. i live in a 5 person house, me being the youngest.(no age) we used to play snes till my mom lost it, we have a 64 (DO A BARREL ROLL!) and an hd 50" plasma screen tv. my brother LOVES cheese. he eats chedder plain with milk (yuck, it looks disgusting) ans he likes artificially flavored banana milk. there. that help you at all? also, i am the only one in my family that like to build. i say my hobby is making: making food, weapons, toys, umm.. misc wierd stuff usually found on instructables. blah blah blah. i recently finiched a suit of cardboard armor and my sister broke the sword twice, and my brrother hits me with the sword, reinforced with wood -_- annoyance. SO, i think thats one of the longest comments ive posted ever, on anywebsite. have you ever googled your well used user names that arent commen? ive looked up mine, pwnerdude, spinafire, cowscankill, t0m blue, umm..... i think thats it. i found cowscankill in bedbuggs youtube tazer instructable xD and spinafire is my youtube account. you should try it sometime (looking up your names, not mine)

It would feel better if it was more 3D *A Better grip, in other words

author
Hellchild (author)2008-01-19

dude, heres a mod for the handle to "not" hurt, just replace the semicircles with those connectors with a clip on one end and a clip on another end (I call 'em long connectors)

author
Mepain (author)Hellchild2008-01-19

1st. They're called orange connectors. 2nd. I know...

author
Hellchild (author)Mepain2008-01-19

1st. well some people have brown orange connectors. 2nd. why dont you put them on the instructable. 3rd. thanks, now I know what they're called

author
Mepain (author)Hellchild2008-01-19

(Response to 2nd) Because this instructable is over a year old, I don't have the sword anymore, and I didn't have any free oranges at the time.

author
Hellchild (author)Mepain2008-01-20

oh, well great instructable i have and it rocks so yeah

author
thebboy (author)2008-01-16

thebboy (author)2008-01-14

author
idy26 (author)2008-01-07

I have a random idea about a sword/gun combo where the sword grip is also the grip of a small sidearm knex pistol attached to the side. The pic on this website gives you an idea> http://www.ruble-enterprises.com/PFsword.htm
Try and build one sometime.

I'm too lazy to do it myself...

author
halomaster007 (author)2008-01-06

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever made a Knex mace?

author
halomaster007 (author)2008-01-06

author
olibogger12 (author)2007-12-14
