Knex Lightsaber Design




Introduction: Knex Lightsaber Design

Hey guys

Inspired by osi, I made a knex lightsword this week. So I decided to post this. (Although it hurts when you get hit with this sword!!! its not made for real fighting, just so you know :P).

The handle is my favorite part. Its made out of Maxima knex parts. And as for the blade... I just snapped some pieces together lol.

Instructions can be found here:

Part list:
32 yellow connectors
31 yellow rods
4 black rods
4 small grey gears
4 grey connectors
1 small wide wheel

2 orange connectors (in brown)
3 white connectors (in black)
8 red connectors (in grey)
2 yellow connectors (in white)
9 white rods (in black)
3 green rods (in black)
2 yellow rods (in grey)
1 black rubber band (from trekker set I think)
1 red knex man hand

I hope you like it :)

    i had trouble with making lightsabers out of k'nex because i couldn't get the blade to be sturdy enough to handle hitting things :P

    You gotta be a real Star Wars nerd to spend time to make that. Let's see if I have enough parts for that.......

    Just saw it... I remember having this conversation what? a year ago... wow nice job and your handle is a lot better than mine :)

    I like it, nice job. I was just wondering, how sturdy/strong is it??? like if you smaked it against a wall, would it shatter???

    just wanted to know, very nice, and cool.

     It's not for real fighting, I think it would just bend when you hit a wall with it. Or break at the bottom of the handle.

    Awesome, most realistic light saber I've ever seen.
