Duct Tape 'Steel' Dagger

Introduction: Duct Tape 'Steel' Dagger

About: I am a cardboard blacksmith, hard at work making armor and accessories. Skyrim, Sword Art Online, and Lord of the Rings all the way. If there is anything you'd like to see me make, I'd love the challenge!

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,
