(Bloodborne) Saw Cleaver

For my project, I decided to tap into my love for videogames and built the Saw cleaver from Bloodborne. It took me about two weeks with a lot of hard work.

Step 1: Making the Handle (pre-shaping)

I started out by measuring the width of my hand so I could find the best diameter for the handle. When I found an decent sized tube which was about 23 in long, I began to make markings at the places I would have to bend it. It was tough to get good estimates from my reference image.

Step 2: Making the Handle (shaping)

After I made sure that the marking were in about the right places, I used a heat gun to bend the pipe at the correct places and cooling it off with cold water so it retained it's given shape; this took a few days to shape it to what I wanted it to look like. Since I just eyeballed it, I can't give any angle measurements.

Step 3: Creating the Blade

I used an X-carve to make the blade from a 0.73 in piece of plywood. The blade is about 19 inches long and about 8 inches wide from the outward most points.

Step 4: Putting It Together

I had to put a notch in the handle to allow for a spot for the blade to pivot. It was quite difficult to get it right and took a lot of trial and error. The notch is about 2 inches deep and about 0.8 inches wide.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

When I finally got it together I started to paint the blade with a silver paint to get a more metallic look. I also wrapped the handle and the pin with black electrical tape.

    Nice work, this turned out looking very good! I'd recommend swapping the current cover image you have, for an image of the actual prop you created. Always show off your completed work up front, don't be shy! : )
