items/tools needed:
1:pipe cutters
2:sludge hammer

5:hot glue gun and lots of hot glue sticks
6:foam mats (you can get them at sports stores)
7:scissors

Step 1: Draw out your blade (I decided to go for a leaf bladed type thing)

Posted Image

Step 2: Cut it out (I had to trim it before I was happy with it

Posted Image

Step 3: Draw out you hilt

Posted Image

Step 4: Cut it out =)

Posted Image

step 5: Firmly hot glue them together (I lost the pic but you should be able to figure it out if you are not a fish)

Step 6: Lay out your copper tubing and cut it to size. mine was just the right size with no cutting =). but cut it with the pipe cutters if you need to. do that twice

Posted Image

Step 7: flatten the copper with the sludge hammer. do this twice

Posted Image

step 8: VERY firmly hot glue the brass to the blade and hilt

Posted Image


step 9: wrap the entire thing in duck tape and decorate it with duck tape and cardboard.

Cool, is it flimsy in any way? Try out Ragnornock's build if foam swords, they're sturdier.

To be historically correct, it's not the first.

oh, fraking trust me. these things are stronger than pvc and are over 4 pounds. they are monsters and will hurt like heck when you get hit by them and you can wack your wall as hard as you want and the wall will have holes in it LONG before the sword breaks. vid:

There's no way in hell I'd be OK with having anyone swinging a 4-pound, non-compressing foam sword at me. Those mats are far too dense/hard to provide adequate protection, and that tip has pain written all over it. For serious H2H, you'd be better off with a big ol' pillowy boffer sword.

I like it, especially the whole "Flatten out a copper pipe" part of it. Very nice idea kiddo.

"Flatten out the copper pipe"? That's a relatively large amount of copper pipe. You would be better off using a cpvc pipe inside, or something. But I'm with Rork... don't hit people with shit like that. You want to waste your effort with foam swords? Be my guest. But put a little more thought in to what might happen if your design fails.

I agree with rork, a boffer sword is a better choice for safety's sake, and it would probably be cheaper.

No offense, but...
1. this isn't the first sword.
2. this thing would hurt like halibut.

Good job, though.

Holy crap, that thing's so freaking dangerous. That's basically like whacking someone over the head (or wherever you're hitting them) while they're wearing a thin piece of foam to protect themselves. it's still going to freaking hurt!

Never use that... except for against Vulcan boxes. Or your hand (which you've already done both, so just keep doing that and don't do anythign else with this "sword")!

If you try to rush me with that at the war, you're getting a face full of PAS. I 'm with Groove when it comes to people rushing with swords.

If anyone pulls one of those on me during a war and attempts to use one on me, I will not hesitate to shoot you in the face.
