lets face it, swords are cool, expensive, and hard to make. so, with a 6$ piece of weldabul steel,(take a note of this, Watson) a thin brass rod, a wood dowel, and a mind full of sharp and pointy objects, i set out on my quest for over-sized letter openers.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

Step 5: Have Fun!
