Picture of sword
basically a big shiny blade.

here's the pieces you need:

2 black/white connectors
4 purple/dark gray clip connectors
6 green connectors
56 blue clip connectors
1 red/dark gray connector
34 yellow/gold/gray connectors

48 green/black small rods
81 white/black/silver rods
32 blue rods

if you want, you can add an optional "hook" on the end of the handle(shown in pic).

2 green/black rods,
and 2 gray connectors(end pieces)

Step 1: Build the blade

basic pieces of the blade
be sure to pay attention to the notes and look at the pictures in order

notice the position of all the blue connectors. for a cleaner look, they should be placed as shown.

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.
 he said it is meant for show...

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

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)
Mepain (author)  Hellchild7 years ago
1st. They're called orange connectors. 2nd. I know...
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
Mepain (author)  Hellchild7 years ago
(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.
oh, well great instructable i have and it rocks so yeah

thebboy7 years ago

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