 you could try layering a couple layers of card board to build up the main shape  then tape around the corrugation.

You could use foamcore or Sintra instead of the wood. They are both much easier to work with than wood, and lighter too.

Try foam board insulation. You can pick some up at lowes or any hard ware store I think. It is about 25 dollars a sheet and you can make your buster sword and probably 5 other types of swords.
