Hey there everyone.
I never ever worked with Wood... NEVER.
That means if i finished this work, you may do it better.

I finished Elucidator and started Dark Repulsor, just need some Paint and little grind here and there.
It looks very well!

Maybe i can do a full Cosplay :)
I just really the EASIEST and FASTEST Way to do it.
Hope u'll enjoy this one.

With with Instruction, you can easily do EVERY "non-Round" Sword you want :)

Step 1: Dimensions Aka. Measurements

How big should your Sword be?
Kiritos height is about 172 cm.
and his Swords about 130 cm.

If you want the Swords perfect fits your height:
130/172 = 0.75581395348

for every 1cm of your OWN Height, add 0,75 cm for the Sword.

If your 1m tall (I bet this Personen exist :D) your sword would be 75 cm.

1,5 m would mean a 112.5cm Sword.

My Sword is about 132cm.
Guess my Height ;D

Step 2: Drawing and Cutting (simply)

For this step, you have two Options:

Drawing the Sword on Wood (If your good in Drawing) Thats the fastest Way.
or Print it out, cut it out and draw the shape.

I used the first one.
And then simply cut it out with whatever you like.
It should look like this in the Picture.

(Sry, i dont have Pictures of this Step, but its very simple)

Step 3: Add Third Dimension.

So, we cut out the Sword.
We need the 3D of it.

Can you Remember how it look like?

Draw it like you drew the Sword and just Glue it over where it belongs.

Step 4: Rasping = Nearly Finished!

Simple and Time taking:

Just Rasp the edges off your Sword so its get "sharp".

Rasp it like you're happy with it.

Dont forget:
Less is more!
If you rasped too much, you can just recue it with trowel.
I recommend to rasp a little less then needed.

Step 5: Just Paint and Your Finished!

First off, i know my Instructions looks kindish and too simple, but thats the way i did it.
In most cases, im more Creative then my Friends, so i need more steps and time to make the same i did.
But its pretty simple.

And i think its look Awesome!

I used just Black and Grey Coating.

Step 6: Finished My Project

We can add i little bit for the Handle.
I wrapped Isolation Tape around it...

Yeah, this is kinda Simple.

There you can see my Elucidator and "Dark Repulsor is made in the EXACT same Way!
BOTH Swords has the same length. 

Step 7: Thank You and Enjoy!

I hope i helped someone with this Instructions.

This was my first ever :)

    So how easy was this? I really interested in this, (I love SAO) so I wanted to know if this was cheap, and or easy. and also if I wanted to make them shorter how would I?

    The only Costs you have is the Wood and the Colors, so its quiet cheat.
    I made Dark Repulsor out of Wood I found on the street, so its completly your choice.
    Just keep in Mind that you need Clear or painted lacquer for finish.

    About the size:
    If you want to make it slightly short er, keep the other Dimensions.
    But if you want to make a miniature Version, short en everything in percent.
    So if you shorten the lenght by 50%, do the same to the width and thickness.

    About how hard this instructable is:
    You just cut out 3 Blocks and glue them together.
    Grinding and simply cut diagonal for the blade.
    AND color.

    I think its fairly easy.

    The problem is that this instructable gave me essentially no information, other than make sword.

    Oh gosh, I already saw at commenzed long ago, im sry!

    I neber saw your comment.
    Yes, because you dont need more.
    You can use any wood you want and any color.
    Be free at your choice (:

    The Main Problem was: I decided to make an Intructable, nearly at the end of the Project.

    And also i got no essential Information for myself.
    I just used any Wood i got, Dark Repulsor is made from Wood i found on the Streets xD

    You dont need more Informations.
    It IS really that easy.

    Wait, how big should the blade and handle (seperately) be if youre 154 cm

    1 reply

    115,5 cm

    Just use my mathematics at the top :)

    Thank you for this!!! Our Adtech project in school is to cut any weapon from plywood. I chose Kirito's elucidator for mine. I have high hopes for my project. :D. I'm going to add a picture if I managed to do it.

    only revcomendation I have is on the black sword, paint it black first then put silver trim. It makes it neater, its easier to make a border than to only exclude the border while painting

    How sturdy is it ( meaning can it be used for fighting or is it more of a cosplay material?)

    1 reply

    Woah, i would never believe that i got that much views.
    It depends on your Material.
    So it could used for fighting if you choose a solid Material.

    I made a sword, but it's really big and the blade is really large... But that cool !

    Idk if this helps but my sword length is 49.5 blade-35.6 hilt+butt-14.9 blade width- 2.6 hilt width-2.2 butt width-2.4 butt length-2.0 and how thick the blade should be is 1.0(all in inches BTW and I'm 175 cm tall).
