Attention in the work
-When you uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) or spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask.


-When you toast mterials etc, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes.

-When you dig mterials etc with Soldering iron, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe in smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes.

-Don't use fire near the things which are easy to burn such as paint, thinner etc.

-When you finished using tools, pull an outlet.

-Read labels of materials and tools, and understand how to use.

How to make
Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).
Pattern paper is here.
When you want to know detailed tutorial of making Templates, browse this page.



Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Cut Templates every parts.


Make the blade.
There are 2 kinds of how to make the blade.

[Vol.1 Easy method]
Cut "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) into a belt form.


Put "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) side by side.


Glue the belt with a Hot melt(glue gun).



Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Use Aluminum stick as a core.
You can use a Wood stick, a plastic stick, a Gardening stick made by glass fiber instead of it.
(If you worry about strength, insert Gardening stick made by glass fiber the inside of Aluminum stick.Details are here.)
Cut it into appropriate length with a Pliers.


Use the two pieces of about 5mm in diameter.
Glue the Aluminum stick.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).



Glue another blade.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).
(If you want to more strong blade, use also Plastic sheets. Details are here.)


Glueing was completed.


Cut out 5mm thick EVA foam.


Paste to the back of blade.
Glue with a Liquid super glue.


Paste edge of blade with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).
Paint it with a broken piece of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) as a brush.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.



Reinforce the blade by painting Liquid super glue on the edge.


Fill it up with a Hot melt(glue gun).

When you use a Super glue Accelerator, Hardening speed becomes fast.
(Smoke may be generated. Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes.)


**********************************************************************


Super glue can glue a large surfaces easily.
But it can't glue a small surface such as this photo well


Then you should use a following spray.
I always use this.
Watch video.


Super glue accelerator
This can glue surfaces in several seconds.
When you use 100ml, you can make a armorset or about three weapons.
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About super glue
I use general liquid super glue.

**********************************************************************


The blade can be put on and took off.
Insert the blade by way of experiment.


Shave the surface if you can't insert easy.
If it fall out easily, Heap with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Cut out 5mm thick EVA foam.
Cut out 10mm thick EVA foam.
