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.
