Duct Tape 'Steel' Dagger

Introduction: Duct Tape 'Steel' Dagger

I am a cardboard blacksmith, hard at work making armor and accessories. Skyrim, Sword Art Online,...

Turn an old plastic Sai into a weapon no warrior should be without.

Step 1: Materials

Plastic ninja dagger (Sai)

Duct tape (I use silver and black)

A brown shoelace, or string

Step 2: Fix 'er Up

My dagger had a long crack running down the side, so I taped it.

Step 3: The Blade

Push the outer blades in and tape them in place so that you have one tapering blade.

Step 4: The Hilt

Tape the hilt.

Step 5: It's Knot Funny

Take the string and tie a slip knot at one end.

Place the knot at the top of the hilt, and tighten it so the string doesn't move.

Step 6: Finishing

Wrap the string around the hilt until it reaches the pommel. (Bottom)

Tie the string through itself, and tape it into place. (Make sure it is tight)

Step 7: Done!

I wrapped the pommel in black for aesthetic value.

You can alter the 'material' by using different colors, like gold or black.

Sincerely yours,
