Frodo's Sting Sword

This is an attempt I made at making a balsa wood sword.
I traced out the basic shape, made 4 layers for the cross section, put clay around the handel and the pummel, and wrapped it in duct tape. This is my third attempt at making this sword, and it's still pretty crappy.
Tell me what you think.

    Yah i made it out of balsa wood, which is extremely weak. I only use this sword as a decoration. It couldn't handle anything else.

    did you do it out of foamboard? Hard to get details right with foamboard, I made mine out of MDF board (thin scrap wood)
