...not bad. :)

Seriously though, this looks very promising. I espicially like the blue glow.
Look forward to an update!

Updatetime:

Today I took the first step for the Sword Grip. I wanīt some kind of "Mecanicus"-Style with some easy materials from my shelf.

Step 1:

Four pieces of wood, salvaged from a Flatscreen-Package.

Step 2:

Prepairing the pieces with white glue and some screws.

Repeat this step....

and then bring the two pieces together (with more screws and glue)

I used a saw, to bring both ends of the handle to the same lenght.

Step 3:

I took some electrical wire for homeinstallation (3x 1,5mmē)....

and stripped them from the isolation to get some nice looking copperwire. Now for the long hard work. covering the woodcore with copperwire. It took me 10 Minutes for a nice beginning.....

but unfortunately i donīt like the overall look and the feeling of this first try....

http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg823...pg&res=landing

So i scraped this prototype, but i can still use the pics i took for a small "First Look". I will keep the copperlook, but I will move on to an more elegant Design......

Ceya soon

That looks awesome! Very inspiring work. Im assuming its for larp?

Ordog 06-23-12 01:43 PM

No, itīs just for fun, and later on as some kind of "Sleep Well" Moodlight.

Grip looks promising. A friend of mine showed me a picture of someone who used crimson leather for the grip, it looked awesome but I think it's a bit more expensive than what your doing right now.

Keep it coming!

You'll need the hilt to be sanded or carved to a round profile, or else it'll just be too uncomfortable to hold or wield. Also, the round profile will allow the wire-winding to work better and look & feel more natural. Love the blue glow!

Ordog 06-23-12 06:57 PM

Like i said, i will make a new grip with a more fitting design :)

Itīs good to be "Back in action"
