Make DeadPool's Katana's -Part 2 Making the Katanas

In this part of the tutorial we make the katanas.

Part 1 of this tutorial (the beginning) is here

 

 

Cut out the pieces

Now cut all those pieces out. Let's do one of the swords. You simply repeat to make the second.

 

Will

Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board: Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

 

Glue together two blades - one right on top of the other. I used hot glue gun.

Glue the blades together

 

Glue the tsuba together

Next glue together two tsuba (guards) one right on top of the other.

 

Cut out the slot

Then cut out the slot.

Insert blade into tsuba

Next slide the tsuba over the end of the sword.

 

Glue it

And glue it about ten inches from the handle end.

 

Repeat for second sword

Now repeat the whole process and make the second katana.

 

Sand the edges

If you have sand paper you can sand the edges of the katanas. This will make them look crisper and more like metal. And you can even do a little bit of shaping with the sand paper to get the shape very katana-like.

 

Nextlet's continue and make the harness
