Make the Blade Sword with the Hidden Dagger - Page two: Finishing up the sword

 

In the previous part of this tutorial we got most of the sword and dagger completed. In this part we just finish making it then we paint it. Part 1 of this tutorial is here

 

 

The Blade Sword with Dagger

 

Glue it

Now put some glue on the other end of the handle; where the blade of the sword is. You can put a little bit of paper towel in there if you want but be careful. You do not want it to squeeze down on anything or make anything tight. You might not be able to get the dagger into the sword if its squeezed tight.

 

Mark the tip of the sword

Now draw points on your sword and on your dagger and cut the points out with any kind of tool like a small saw or even a hobby knife. You can even use a belt sander.

 

The blade guard

Now make the blade guard by cutting out a circle of foam board and cutting a slot in it as shown.

 

Add the handle

 

Slide that circular blade guard over the tip of the blade and all the way down to the handle. Glue it in place.

 

Wrap the handle with wire

Now glue wire onto the handle like shown in this picture. Just cut pieces of wire and glue them around the handle. If you use hot glue gun it is easy. But if you use a regular glue it will take a while so you have to tape it all down while it is drying.

You can also use any number of things rather than wire like thin hose or even pieces of rope or twine.

 

Spray Paint works well

Once all the glue is dry go ahead and paint it. I painted the handles black and the blades silver. Don't forget to take the dagger out and paint that blade!. Don't put the dagger back in until it is completely dry. Otherwise it will stick and you won't be able to take it back out!

 

Use electrical tape on the handle

I also wrapped both the handles in electrical tape. We have already painted the handles in black and that looks great but I like the look of the electrical tape. I think it looks even better.

 

Insert the dagger into the handle

And there you go! The completed sword and dagger. This picture shows me about to put the dagger into the handle of the sword.

 

The Completed Blade Sword

With the dagger installed you can't even tell there is a dagger in there. It looks like one continuous handle.

Hidden Blade

Make an Assassin's Creed Hidden Blade that works!

This is a fun project that just uses cardboard or foam board with a rubber band. It really works quite nicely. Make an Assassin's Creed Hidden Blade
