Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Frame

Take your metal hanger and bend it into shape(pic1) Take your snips or scissors and cut out the bent piece(pic2).

Step 2: The Blade

Take your marker and draw that basic shape of your hanger. If any sides are bent, draw them as straight lines. Do this twice. Then, cut them out. 

Step 3: The Handle

Take your pipe and make marks slightly further apart than your pinky to your thumb. Then, cut it out with the saw. If you are a child, have an adult do this step for you. I don't want anyone cutting their hand off.

Step 4: The Rest

Take your foam and draw a shape that looks like a lower case n. Draw staight lines, no diagonols. Use  the same tecnique as my gun tutorial- cardboard, then foam, then cardboard. Cut out with the exacto knife.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Now that we are done that, take all your things, and hotglue them together. The pipe you cut out should fit in between the sides of the n.  Finnaly, the blade goes from cardboard-hanger-cardboard. Then, glue the blade to the handle. You are now done your Katar. I hope you enjoyed this and I want to see your creations in the comments below.
Paint it.
Wrap duct tape arond the handle for a grip

    Not to be critical, but spell check is your friend, it will make your instrucable shine more if people can properly understand what you are trying to convey. You might also want to note that it is a prop. Nice effort though!
