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

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)
