Step 1: Materals + Equipment
You need is a straight length of pipe = the length of the pipe is the length of the finished sword.
a hammer = the bigger the better =)
a hard flat surface = awork bench or (if your like me} the pavement in my beckyard.
leather = for the handle (optional)
Step 2: Marking
Mark out where the handle will be by comfortably putting your hand around the base then put a scratch or marker pen mark just above your hand.
Step 3: The Blade
To make the blade get a hammer and put the pipe on the hard surface.
Going from the end of the pipe hammer the pipe flat until you come to the mark you made.
keep on turning the pipe around to hammer on the other side of the blade to keep it looking equal.
After this hammer out the bumps and keep doing this until the blade is completely straight.
Step 4: Handle
This is completely optional
wrap some leather around the handle using strong glue to keep it in place.
Step 5: Sharpen Blade
now use the hammer and just keep on hammering around the edges.
thisd will make the edges very fine and sharp.
