Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Step 2: The Blade
for this part you should use about 30-40 pages from your phonebook
the folds for the blade are in order in the pictures note: blade should be as thick as it is in the last pic.
Step 3: Reinforce the Blade
now you will want to take a folded coat hanger and insert it into the blade
Step 4: Hilt (or "Handle" for the Non-sword-savy)
the hilt is basically a rectangle that is thinner than it is wide
then just duct tape the hilt to the blade (don't worry it will look better later)
Step 5: Hand Guard
this is the last thing you will have to fold. the pictures show how to. it is a basic fold and will take some cutting with some heavy shears.
Step 6: Finish It Up
now all you have to do is put everything together and cover the blade in duct tape and everything else in black tape
AND YOUR DONE=)
