Make the template
Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).
When you want to know how to make Templates of weapons, browse this page.



Building the blade


Cut "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) into a belt form.


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


Paste them



"Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) is sold in only Japan.
It's harder than Drawing paper. The thickness is about 0.5mm.
I'm sure you can't get it.
Then, substitute various thin plastic sheets.


Cut material into the Templates form.
Cut out "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Use it as a core.
Cut it wit Freeway coping saw, pliers, nippers, diamond files, etc.
This stick is just a iron stick.
You can substitute various metalic sticks.


園芸用の棒は一応Amazonでも売ってるが異常に高い、ホームセンターや100均で買った方が良い。


I finished cutting.


Bend Iron gardening stick by hand.


Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).


ギャクヨガが愛用しているグルーガンです、口が広くてとても使いやすい!

Glue another blade.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).


I finished glueing.


Fill the back of blade with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Stroke the back of blade with a tip of Hot melt(glue gun), then the surface becomes flat.


Glue edges of the blade.
Glue with "Bond G17"(one of sticky glue in Japan). Detailed process is here.
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 applying Liquid super glue on the edge.


Present state.


Building the guard


Cut material into the Templates form.
Cut out 1.5mm or 2mm thick EVA foam.
Cut out 10mm thick EVA foam.
The symbols in photo are parts name of templates.





EVA foam is soft material.
You can process it easily.
Other names are EVA board, EVA zote, Craft foam etc.
Cosplayers all over the world use this.
It's sold in Amazon or AliExpress etc.

Introduction video




Use a sharp blade. For example, "Pro Blade".
This is so sharp.
←10枚入り ←50枚入りお得パック

I always use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker",Cutting mat.
"Blade breaker" can break the blade easily.


Use Standard art knife or Cushion grip art knife to cut small ornaments etc, too.
Standard art kinfe is for 1.5mm thickness and 3mm thickness.
Cushion grip art knife is for 5mm thickness and 10mm thickness.
