Blade of Chaos-God of War

About: Backyard builder who enjoys building things and constructing props from my favorite video games and movies, making furniture, and trying out new ideas. Mostly with as much recycled materials as I can possibl...

I made these replica blades six years ago when I was seventeen. They are made after my favorite game God of War (for those who don't know). They aren't perfect but i think they are pretty good for a first try with what tools I had (jigsaw, sander and a wood file). I have learned a lot and acquired way more tools since then haha.
They are made from a single piece of knotty pine and a length of chain.

-First i started with a template for the pieces i needed.
-I cut out a main sword piece and then two more to go on each side of the main piece.
-Then i filed and sanded like crazy until the blade had a nice edge and was smooth.
-Painted the pieces and screwed them together. Attached the chain to the butt of the handle and was done.

And now they make a nice edition to my game room.

    Wow. Hand-filed and hand-sanded? These are slick. And I bet your fingers and wrists were in great shape for playing God of War after you finished.
