Hi, Maurice!  Love your work on this.  I'm about to start work on Gisen Yagyu's scissor sword from Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls and had almost the exact same method in mind.

One question though that I didn't see answered: how much does it *weigh*?  I thought about using 1" thick softwood planks because MDF felt heavier... but MDF is more easily formed; I prefer it as a construction material.  Thanks!

Thanks alot!

The Blade wheights about 900 gramm (1.9 pounds) so its not that heavy, actually I think it´s a pretty realistic wheight.

Personally I definitely prefer and suggest MDF over softwood planks. MDF is easier to machine and you get a smoother surface. The wood texture of softwood planks can cause difficulties in that. And if you seal it with resin it get´s more durable.

Oh crap, somehow I completely missed this reply, haha.

Thanks, Maurice!  I'll certainly consider that.  Like I said, I love how easily MDF forms, and I'm quite in love with Bondo, haha.  I'm sure I'll have more questions later, thanks again!

No problem, that happens to me sometimes, too.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

Another question.  Since you used a layer of resin- how long did it take to dry?
Mauricechief Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
That depends on the used Resin, normaly there is a fast and slow hardener aviable. The fast hardener cures in ca. 20 minutes, the slow hardener in ca. 20 Hours. Iīm using the slow one.

This is really awesome-- you have so much skill!  I have a question, though: how much did all of the materials cost and which hardware stores could I buy them from?  Thank you so much for your time!

Thanks alot, I really appreciate it :)
I think the materials costed about 180 Dollars. I bought them in local Hardware stores here in Germany I donīt think they exist in the United States too, sorry.

Thank you so much! I just needed to know to see how much money I would need to save up from commissions.  They're probably available in a home depot or something, so it's fine.  I can't wait to see your future works :)

A couple more questions- sorry for bothering you!
I am trying to figure out how you did this exactly.
Okay, so you cut out the pieces from MDF wood.  Once you have the shape and try to make it smoother by using epoxy putty and eventually sanded that down as well.  Do you eventually spray primer spray paint onto the wood and then spray paint it with red or is it just paint for wood? After that do you use epoxy resin over the paint once it is dry? Thank you so much for answering ; -;
