Sword (Light Saber)

About: I think it's fun to shoot guns & build things. Also, I love to play football, baseball, and basketball. I play the piano and I like to build electronics.

This is a cheap way to make a sword, light saber whatever. Kids love it!

    When you whack somebody with this, does it hurt?? I mean, like a FAST whack. Will it hurt?? Because I really want to make one of these, but if battling with my friends means pain, I'll pass.

    Seconded- if the pipe has enough space, a mini torch (yeah ok flashlight if you insist) in the handle would make this a whole lot cooler.
